Leeuwarden

Overall Score

3.8

The city of Leuvaarden is the center of the province of France, located in the Netherlands. The natural landscape, represented by the vast meadows and the many natural waterholes in the area, encouraged the birth and development of livestock farming. An unusual memorial to a cow in the city is a clear indication of this. In one of the houses in the city, Marguerite Gerarda Cethe, who later became known as Mata Khary, came into the world.

For a long time, the original settlement of the land on the site of the modern city was thought to have occurred in the 10th century. New archaeological investigations have uncovered structures dating back to the beginning of the 2nd century. The old city was on the banks of the Meudelhaulze River and was a thriving market town in the 15th century.

Modern Lóójurðén is known for its skating marathon. Winter sports fans from all over the country flock there. The skaters walk 202 kilometers along frozen channels. The large-scale sporting event is accompanied by a spectacular spectacle. The center of the city is decorated by another famous symbol – the falling tower of Îleåhöhe, 40 meters high.
