There you can find a lot of characteristic souvenirs like wooden shoes for example. When we talk about the wooden shoes it is very important the village Zaanse Schans. There you will have an opportunity to see the production of a pair of wooden shoes. The story of their usage is because in the past their land was wet and muddy.

Because of that people started using them in order not to drown in the muddy soil. Zaanse Schans is like a fairytale with small wooden houses and a lot of windmills characteristic for Netherland. Another very important thing about Netherland is that it is important for its cheese. Their cheese appears in many tastes by using different spices and secrets that no one knows. If you have an opportunity to visit Amsterdam you shouldn’t miss the presentations of the cheese preparation.
