  • Such a great find in Zaandam. A fascinating building with sloping walls and ancient graffiti. Definitely worth a visit.

  • It is small but really cute . Entrance is quite cheap at 5€. It is said to be the oldest still existing wooden house in the Netherlands. Czar Peter the Great stayed here for 8 days to study shipbuilding . It takes about 15 or 20 mins to walk around in it and I recommend it.
  • Interesting small museum with one of the oldest houses in The Netherlands inside a brick building to protect it. The house became famous after Tsar Peter the Great stayed there incognito (at first) in 1697 on his mission to learn shipbuilding. Being a tall man with 2,04m you wonder how he managed to live in that small house when Dutch people were only 1,65m tall at that time. On the sides of the old house are interesting panels on history. Obviously the place is popular with many through the years but especially with Russian visitors. No wonder the ladies at the desk are of Russian origin but speak fluent Dutch as well. The museum is only a 15 min walk from the train station which has a direct connection to Amsterdam
