Dreamy Scenery Of Netherland Zaanse Schans


Zaanse Schans is a renowned tourist destination in Netherlands. It's located at about 14 km northwest of Amsterdam.

Leaving Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, the coach driven by Hungarian driver Peter headed to Zaanse Schans. The weather is fine when we arrived at Zaanse Schans. I got off the coach to take a deep breath of free and fresh air in Europe.

Besides the quaint windmills, the Zaan River view is truly killing. Zaanse Schans is relocated along the bank of Zaan River.

The buildings in the village are replica of Zaanse village of the seventeenth and eighteenth century in Netherlands. Walking around in Zaanse Schans, really like going back to ancient Netherlands.
