A day trip to Scheveningen Beach on a sunny Sunday. The most recommenend transportation is bicycle. Walking is a good choice also, since you can travel by tram. Despite your travel method, always remember to watch the weather report in advance. The beach is definitely one of the must-visit locations in The Hague.Read More›
Part of our introduction days in The Hague University included a museum tour in the legendary Mauritshuis. The Museum is located in the heart of The Hauge right next to Binnenhof. It was renovated a couple of years ago and has hundreds of thousands of visitors per year. The most famous paintings are Girl with a Pearl Earring, aka Dutch Mona Lisa, by Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer and The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp by Rembrandt. I tried my best not to be the obtrusive picture snapping tourist, so I didn’t use flash even though conditions were pretty dim.Read More›
Malakkastraat – My Home Street
My current living quarters in The Hague are located at Malakkastraat in the Archipelbuurt district. It’s a quiet neighborhood without shopping streets, but still within a 15 minutes walk from the City Center. Almost at backyard is a nice park or forest named Scheveningse Bosjes (Woods). Great place to jog and walk your dog. Wherever you walk the canals as a signposts. I took some photos from the surrounding streets and parks, enjoy.Read More›
The Hague is not the constitutional capital of The Netherlands (it’s Amsterdam). But it is the home of The Dutch Government, Parliament, Supreme Court, Council of State, Embassies, International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court plus a ton of different EU agencies. One of the biggest sights to see is Binnenhof, which is next to a small pond called Hofvijver. Binnenhof is a Gothic castle built in the 13th century. Pictures of The Binnenhof and Hofvijver right below.
First apartment is located near to The Hague Centraal Station and next to Forest of The Hague (Haagse Bos). Another parks right next to The Forest are Duinbos and Oosterbeek. A little running in the morning at the local parks is awsome. Parks are clean, green and quiet. Random encounters with other joggers or dog walkers have 50/50 chance of exchanging smiles!Read More›
My first time in Amsterdam. Had to visit the basic tourist attractions, here you can read more. Two nights and days of walking and photographing in Amsterdam was satisfying. Foggy days and warm nights are rare sight for a Finn. Here is a little bit of Amsterdam seen trough the lens in January 2015. Enjoy.Read More›
The must have tourist photo in front of the I amsterdam.
After arriving Schiphol Airport we took the Bus 197 (ticket 5€) near to Vondelpark. Our Hotel (Hotel City Garden Amsterdam) was very cozy and in a walking distance from the city center. Special delight was for the excellent breakfast. Due our quick stoping (2 nights) at Amsterdam we decided to walk around the city and get the feeling of it.Read More›
