Have you ever wanted to live your own fairy-tale? If your answer is yes, you may want to consider moving to the village Giethoorn. This village has no roads, so no wonder that it is also known as “Venice of the Netherlands”. Discover amazing pictures about this magical village which are straight out of a fairytale book!
Believe it or not, there is a village in the Netherlands that has no roads or any modern transportation at all, only canals. There are 176 bridges, too. Tourists have to leave their cars outside of the village and they can travel here only on foot or by boat (usually by “whisper boats”, which have noiseless engines). Now you can probably imagine how peaceful it is here (without tourists, of course)! Even the village’s website says that “the loudest sound you can normally hear is the quacking of a duck or the noise made by other birds”. It’s like something out of a storybook!
