|In the vicinity of Leiden there are many tourist sites. The main tourist attraction of 2006 is the 400th anniversary mof the birth of the most famous painter in the world Rembrandt. For this reason it is good to make a reservation of a hotel
as soon as possible.
Of course there are other many attractive sites about culture, architecture, art, etc. Leiden is near the beach of the North Sea and our country has beautiful sand beaches. So if you like this, it is possible to rent holiday houses.
Below you will find some sites to start your preparation of a visit to our country and the ESOP (or is it to the ESOP and our country?)
