Giethoorn

Giethoorn, known as the “Venice of the North” is a romantic small town in the Netherlands, which has no road, but this instead of them-kilometer canal filled with water, hiking trails and more than 150 wooden bridges that connect them. This idyllic place that looks like Venice designed by hobbits were originally founded by renegades and mercenaries. Around 1230, a group of fugitives from the Mediterranean region has established a small village here, a little later a group of monks dug up all the channels and filled them with water to make it easier to carry cargo through područje.Kanali Giethoorn are only about a meter deep, and as such are survived for several centuries. The city is now home to just under 3,000 people, most homes were built on small private islands that are connected with the rest of the city with more than 150 wooden bridges.
