Favorite thing: Breda is a lovely middle size Dutch city. There are few interesting sites to visit, nice old city and active culture and nightlife. I visited here only for one weekend, the timing was perfect for me as it was a football weekend, so I enjoyed it even more.

Favorite thing: Breda has strong connection to the Royal House of Orange Nassau . In the 15th century the German count Engelbrecht van Nassau married the heiress of the first Lord of Breda. Right at the entrance to the Valkenberg Park you?ll find the Nassau-Baronie Monument, which was ceremoniously openned by the Queen Wilhelmina. The shields which can be found at the bottom of the monument used to belong to small municipalities in and around ancient Breda.

Favorite thing: This statue can be found in the middle of the Grote Markt, infront of the famous cafe-bar "Dante". Can't really tell what the statue symbolizes, but actually the tip is about the Grote Markt. It is the main square of the city where most of the cafes, bars and restaurants are situated. Besides that you can find there the VVV - Tourist information office, a small hotel, and the pride of Breda the Church of our Lady

Favorite thing: It was remarkable that, although the streets in the centre were filled with shoppers, just around the corner of the Grote Markt in the direction of the beguinage, the cobbled streets were so quiet and empty, and with lovely good maintained houses. It was so relaxing to walk these streets after the busy centre.
