Optical illusion in The Hague

The Hague is the third largest city of The Netherlands (with approximate 510 000 inhabitants). The Hague is NOT the capital of The Netherlands, even though The Parliament, the Dutch Government, the Council of State and the Supreme Court are seated here. (Amsterdam is the capital of The Netherlands). The Hague is the largest city at the North Sea and is divided into 8 official districts.

Willem-Alexander Claus George Ferdinand is the King of The Netherlands and two of his residences are: Huis ten Bosch (“House in the Woods”) and Noordeinde Palace in The Hague.

I’ve been to The Hague for a few hours and the weather was far more humid and cloudy than it is in Belgium!

There wasn’t much to do, except walking around to see the Dutch Parliament situated on the Hofvijver pond, have a hot coffee in a cozy pub on the small streets and visit the Escher Museum with optical illusions and interesting chandeliers.
