Enkhuizen

This is a photo from the city of Enkhuizen, which is located in the region West-Frisia in the province of Noord-Holland. As one of main ports of the VOC, the Dutch East-India Company, it was one of the country's most important towns in the 17th century, the Dutch Golden Age. Nowadays, the city has got about 18,000 inhabitants. It is located on the shores of Lake IJsselmeer.

Seen here is the historic town gate, called the Drommedaris, which means Dromedary. Construction started in 1540, which makes it the oldest building in the city. It is located next to the entrance to the Old Harbour.
