Volendam, The Netherlands

Volendam, The Netherlands, originally uploaded by CarolinaRen.

This is another cool multi-view, showing the neat, historical area of Voldendam, in North Holland. When reading about it, I was intrigued to learn that only maybe 50 people today wear the traditional costume of Volendam on the streets--and they are mostly elderly people.

I also found a very cool website that shows the different costumes of the different Dutch regions: You'll see the costume of Volendam on there, too!
