The Hague is the iconic capital city of the province of South Holland, Netherlands. The city had seen more than its fair share of wars with The Eighty Years' War and the Napoleonic Wars. As a result, The Hague's inner city appears very different from her neighbouring cities. Lacking in canals, The Hague, instead, has small streets in the town centre. It's not bad at all, seeing how they've preserved the huge, luxurious streets in other parts of the city where the affluent and royal families would reside in the 18th century. You can expect to be wowed by the beautiful architecture and rich heritage. From 15th-century churches, to 17th-century palaces, to many other 18th-century buildings that are littered across the entire city! While the older parts of the city boasts in these buildings, parts of the city have also developed, offering skyscrapers, and many well-respected universities.
