Cute Little Village With (10 pics)

Posted in Lifestyle » Travel   11 May 2016   / 2781 views

If I wanted to live in some kind of magical place, it would definitely be this beautiful fairytale-ish village in Netherlands...

 

This village is called Giethoorn and it has no roads, only canals and 176 bridges. Tourists have to leave their cars outside the village and take a boat to visit it. And the boats here have noiseless engines. Just imagine how peaceful it must be here.

The most common mode of transportation is by “whisper boats”, which have noiseless engines

Therefore, the village is very peaceful…

The loudest sounds you’ll hear is probably the quacking of a duck (well, when it isn’t flooded with tourists, of course)

Also known as “the Venice of the Netherlands”, this magical village was founded around 1230

Its first inhabitants found numerous peat deposits and dug many holes over the years

Eventually, these holes turned into lakes

The newly created islands were connected with more than 176 bridges

Which give the village a cozy fairy-tale touch…
