Wedged between The Hague and Rotterdam, this Medieval gem brims with infectious Dutch charm and culture. Delft, encircled by a bevy of sparkling canals that are miraculously illuminated when the sun rolls down, is instantly associated with striking Medieval architecture, ceramic artistry immortalized in Delftware, a world famous ceramic pottery art, and its renowned university. A prominent trade center during the Middle Ages, Delft’s historic downtown is teeming with vestiges of iconic architecture, from the imposing mark of Gothic glory left behind by the Nieuwe Kerk, to the slightly tilting Oude Kerk that looms over the canal-ringed city. The city’s enchanting spirit is hardly newfound - in fact, it proved to be the inspiration for the success of several Golden Age artists and statesmen - from painter Johannes Vermeer and scientist Antoni van Leeuwenhoek, to 16h Century scholar Hugo Grotius- who were all born here.
