Utrecht

For our third day in Holland we took a train to Utrecht to have a look around and visit a museum or two :)

I think I liked Utrecht the most out of the places we visited in Holland, there were just soooo many interesting buildings and shops to see ^^

Like other Dutch cities, Utrecht has a great blend of old and new buildings to see as you walk around, and one of the most impressive was the Dom Tower which can be seen for miles around……and it was really useful as a landmark for our wanderings :P

The are a lot of paved public squares around the centre of the city, and these were a great place to take a break and just do a bit of people watching.

Utrecht is the hometown of Dick Bruna, the creator of Miffy (Nijntje in Dutch), so of course they have a pedestrian crossing with Miffy shaped signals ;P
