Volendam

Volendam is a charming historic fishing village located on the shores of the Ijsselmeer ( Lake IJssel ) to the north of Amsterdam, although fairly small (only 22000 inhabitants), it is one of the most popular tourist destinations in The Netherlands. Volendam is well known for its harbor, fishing industry, pittoresque streets and of course the traditional clothes worn by some of its residents. It is one of the best known towns of Holland. Early in the 20th century it became a famous retreat for artists visited by Picasso and Renoir. The population is predominantly Roman Catholic, which is an important part of the Volendam culture.
