    thehague-tower

    Favorite thing: The Hague has been named a village until the 19th century ... ieew... even it did have a prominent church large enough for any city to be proud of. I'm referring to the St. Jacob (Haagsche Toren), an important church, of which its leaders had close relations with the royals of Holland and the distinguished Stadholders.

    Original born-in-The Hague people (Hagenezen) cannot without its church, named Grote Kerk (Large Church) and, to the insiders "Haagsche Toren" (Tower Of The Hague). When hitting this particuliar spot ... mail me and I would be happy to drag you around, ... my humble living-place is just around the corner, greetzzz RoyJava

    Fondest memory: Actually not an original born-in-The Hague guy I feel some thrills too, seeing the Haagsche Toren from distance. Ofcourse my living-place is close to it, and I do feel happy walking around The Tower and its close shopping-center of The Hague. And you can smell the ocean ... really ;o)

    Favorite thing: Since 1995, The Hague has a new townhall, public library and municipal archives right in the centre of the city between department stores, offices and theatres. The large, white building was disigned by the American architect, Richard Meier. About 2,300 civil servants work here, and it is also a meeting place for the people of The Hague.
