Firstly we will explore Middelburg, the capital of the province of Zeeland and one of the oldest towns in the Netherlands which possibly dates back to the late 8th century or early 9th century. It is one of the three fortified cities in the then island of Walcheren with the purpose of guarding the island from Viking raids. A monastery was constructed on the site, which continued to be an active Catholic ground until the Reformation period. It was built in the 10th century and further constructions were made until the Middle Ages. During the Middle Ages, it was one of the ley points of trade and commerce between the cities of Flanders and England for cloth industries and and acted as a transshipment center for French wares. Its status and prominence continued until the 13th and 14 centuries. When the Low Countries gained their freedom from the Spanish Habsburg rulers in the Eighty Years’ War, they formed a Protestant state, The Netherlands. Now here you will find 1100 large and small monuments that breathe the atmosphere and the wealth of the past. The mighty abbey (abdij),the impressive city hall and the fabulous warehouses, that date back to the time when Middelburg was second in the East India Company to Amsterdam.

It is home to the most scenic and breathtaking brick architecture in town. Aside from these beautiful buildings and constructions, there are also a lot of restaurants and cafes in Middelburg where you can rest and relax before or after exploring the wondrous city. Our next stop will be at Breda which is a wonderful fun-loving city in the southern part of Holland. Where you can visit the historic monuments dating from the Nassau era, such as a Great Church, Begijnhof and Breda Castle.
