Volendam


Netherlands

Volendam, called "the pearl of the Zuiderzee" is a fishing village in Holland.

Volendam's traditional costume is one of best known examples of ancient clothing in the country. The women's costume, with its high-pointed bonnet, is one of the most recognisable of the Dutch traditional costumes.
