The Hague has some important attractions for you to enjoy. They include Plein, the old town center of the medieval city which is right next to the Binnenhof, the historic place where the Dutch States General (parliament) used to meet. They both are historically and culturally significant destinations in the city and country and are a blend of modern, medieval and renaissance architecture. Its beginnings very very humble and started out as a collection of fields. But, the town center was built later on in 1632 and the design was inspired by Place des Vosges of Paris. It holds a curious statue of William the Silent in the middle that has been there since 1848.
The Palace gardens in the city are part of the royal family’s grounds that are open to public and people go there from all over the country to enjoy the serene beauty and calm in the gardens.

It is one of three residences of the Dutch monarchy and has been the official working headquarters of the Dutch king for a few years now since the current king likes the place very much. Its rich history goes back almost five hundred years when it started as a medieval farmhouse. Popular owners and tenants include famous French philosopher Voltaire, the widow of famous William of Orange, King of England and the states’ general presented this property to her son in 1609.
