Delft, built in 1246, is a small town with a long history. The ancient canals, stone arches, and tranquil countryside are intertwined, and the world square exudes an ancient atmosphere. The inner city is full of waterways and small bridges, and the old buildings are quite similar to the city centre of Amsterdam. Therefore, it is also said that Delft is the epitome of Amsterdam. As night falls, the restaurant on the square, while eating food, feels the beauty of the city.
In the seventeenth century, as the East India Company brought many oriental cultures and handicrafts to Europe, porcelain became the heart of the European elite. However, due to limited imports, the Europeans immediately began to imitate the production of porcelain. Delft is the famous capital of porcelain in the Netherlands. The Delft Blue produced here is the high imitation closest to blue and white porcelain, and gradually developed its own unique style. "Royal Delft" is one of the most famous porcelain companies, loved by the Dutch royal family, and has celebrated its 365th birthday this year. In addition to the visit, visitors can also participate in the painting, and bring their own work home. The
Moretta Museum is located in The Hague, a wall from the Prime Ministers Office. Formerly the private residence of the Dutch colonial governor, Moritas, the Dutch collection of famous painters. The treasure of the town hall is a "girl with pearl earrings", and there are many master paintings such as Rubens and Rembrandt. There are two self-portraits of Rembrandt, one is in his early twenties, the first is the coveted year, and his last self-portrait. The years portray traces on the master's face, but his soul is always immortal in the fascinating light and shadow.
The territory of the Netherlands is not much across the country. It is less than 3 hours
so it is only about 15 minutes by train from Rotterdam to Delft
although the capital of each city and country in the Netherlands is the same.
But the construction of the train station corresponding to each city is not sloppy
and the train station in the Netherlands needs to pay for the ticket (Belgium, France and other countries do not need it)
This is also a guarantee for passengers.

The story of the city of Delft is inseparable from the blue porcelain, one of the six strongholds of the Dutch East India Company in the Netherlands. At the end of the 16th century, the East India Company worked hard to expand the Asian market and brought China's blue and white porcelain back to the Netherlands. I did not expect the Dutch to be fascinated. The Dutch demand for blue porcelain is growing, but China was in civil strife at the time, so the Dutch used their brains to imitate blue and white porcelain. After so many years of development, they have improved their own porcelain products, known as "blue porcelain."
The current Royal Delft has opened a museum to showcase its exquisite blue porcelain. Here you can watch the designer how to make blue porcelain, how the factory burns blue porcelain, and even take part in the painting of a blue porcelain souvenir.
Look carefully at the color of the porcelain. If there is blue and also contains the national color of the Netherlands, it must be used by the royal family.
The souvenir shop here is especially worth a visit. I took a look at the Dutch cartoon character Mi Fei rabbit at a glance and couldn't help but buy it and take it home.
