We might live in a relatively flat province - in clear weather you can see the lighthouses on the islands from Leeuwarden - but when it comes to Frisian icons, we are head and shoulders above the rest of the Netherlands. From National Parks to industry movers and shakers. The Wadden Sea, the Ir. D.F. Woudagemaal, the Eise Eisinga Planetarium; these are just a few of the many exciting places to visit in our province.
In 2017, it will be exactly 100 years since Mata Hari was executed before a firing squad in Vincennes. Did she die as a double agent or as an exotic dancer?
Castles and country estates, mills and churches: Friesland has a wealth of special buildings. They not only adorn our province, they also say something about our culture.
