Posted in Arts » Beautiful 7 Sep 2016   / 1321 views

Bloemencorso Zundert is the largest flower parade in the world entirely made by volunteers. The parade takes place on the first Sunday of September. The floats are large artworks made of steel wire, cardboard, papier-mâché and flowers. In the Bloemencorso Zundert, only dahlias are used to decorate the objects and it takes thousands of them just to cover one float.

Tommy Kleyn rides his bicycle to work every morning along the waterfront in the Netherlands but he got tired of seeing how much pollution was lining its banks. He decided that he would fill one garbage bag per day with rubbish until he had cleaned it completely and his actions inspired others to help out as well. It is great to see how good it looks now.

Now You Can Spend the Night in a Luxury Prison (16 pics)

The worst prison in the Netherlands has been converted into a luxury hotel offering guests the experience of being a criminal from $160 per night. Het Arresthuis was a prison for almost 150 years before the prisoners were moved elsewhere in 2007. I definitely wouldn’t mind spending a night here.

Cube Houses from the Netherlands (13 pics)

Posted by Xaniel in Arts » Design 17 Aug 2012   / 7699 views

These unusual buildings were designed by architect Piet Blom. Several dozens of such cube-shaped houses called Kubuswoningen were built in the Dutch towns of Rotterdam and Helmond in the midlle of the ‘70s. The total area of each house is around 100 square meters (1075 sq. ft.), though about a quarter of the space is unusable due to angled ceilings. In 2009 several cubes were converted into a hostel.

The Best Moments from World Cup 2010 (114 pics)

Yesterday was the World Cup final match between Spain and Netherlands. For the first time in their history, Spain won! Congratulations. For some people it was even not that big news, because  octopus Paul aka "octopus oracle" predicted Spain's victory in their 2010 World Cup final soccer match against Netherlands by choosing a mussel, from a glass box decorated with the Spanish national flag instead of a glass box with the Netherlands flag. Paul had correctly picked Spain as winner against Germany in the semi-final match.

In this post, you’ll see the best moments from this World Cup as well as the celebration ceremony for winners.

The Dutch Remembrance Day turned a traditional ceremony of remembrance in Amsterdam into panic. It was caused by a man who was screaming in the crowd of thousands during the 2 minutes’ silence. Panic rose quickly, people were hurt in the ensuing chaos. The man says he is sorry that 63 people were injured. According to his lawyer, he was drunk. That’s it. A drunkard screamed, and the whole crowd thought there had been some kind of attack.

You should watch the video to realize the real magnitude of what had happened.

I don’t know how it caught fire, but it burned almost completely. It happened somewhere in Netherlands. It feels like there was a tendency among Lamborghinis to catch fire, like with this one in Greece.
