Oostpoort or Eastern Gate

Apart from its technical university, Delft Blue pottery and the Nieuwe Kerk - all mentioned in the previous part, Delft of course has a few other things to see.

The Oostpoort or Eastern Gate (above) for example, or Windmill De Roos (The Rose, indeed), the last of the original fifteen windmills on the walls of Delft. Or the city hall and the market. Or the statue of Hugo Grotius (in plain Dutch Hugo de Groot), the Delft lawyer who, as early as in the 17th century, laid the foundations for international law.

I love the windmill, and the city hall is so intricate and distinctive! (At least to my American eyes smile)  
Lovely set!

For European eyes it's quite distinctive too (however not totally unique), don't worry smile

Lots of blue including the water.  I like the city hall, kind of wish you had enlarged it so the details were more pronounced. Looks like a nice place to visit.

There might be a closer view in my Pinterest album (not sure though), but that link I will only publish in the last episode of this series smile
