Goodbye Enkhuizen

Let’s say goodbye to Enkhuizen with one more photo (at least for now) of the old harbour and the old city gate the Drommedaris (Dromedary), which is a symbol for the city.

Located on the shores of Lake IJsselmeer, which was created after the closure of the Zuiderzee by the Afsluitdijk in 1932, Enkhuizen used to be one of the most important harbours in The Netherlands during the Dutch Golden Age (16th century), the heyday of the Dutch East India Company, VOC. Enkhuizen is situated in the region of West-Friesland in the province of Noord-Holland.

My next photo will be from another historic Dutch town, which has close connection to yet another old trading network, even older than the VOC.
