Marken


Netherlands

Until recently Marken was an island in the Zundersee, isolated from the rest of the Netherlands.

Being isolated for centuries, it developed an independent culture - its own architecture, dialect, dress, and more - that allowed it to form an identity unique in all the Netherlands, which makes it fascinating.
