Amsterdam - the capital city.

In the Netherlands everybody skates! Ice skating dates back over amillennium where the natives use to travel on frozen rivers and canals by adding bones to their shoes in order to be able to skate.

Holland is a fairly young monarchy. The Kingdom of the Netherlands was established in 1815, and King William I was its first ruler. The first king of Holland was from the House of Orange-Nassau. The origin of Holland’s motto, ‘Je maintiendrai (“I will maintain”)’, the colors of the flag and the national color orange may all be found in the House of Orange-Nassau. Princess Beatrix was the reigning monarch for over 30 years. In 2013 her eldest son, Willem-Alexander, succeeded to the throne. The monarch has limited power; the King has immunity, but the real power lies with the ministers. The monarch is neutral and does not make pronouncements about political topics.

When my Grandma lived in Holland, the only shoes she wore were Klompen. {wooden shoes}
