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…
