106 photos from Versailles
The Palace of Versailles, or simply Versailles, is a royal château in Versailles, the Île-de-France region of France. In French, it is known as the Château de Versailles. When the château was built, Versailles was a country village; today, however, it is a suburb of Paris, some twenty kilometres southwest of the French capital. The court of Versailles was the centre of political power in France from 1682, when Louis XIV moved from Paris, until the royal family was forced to return to the capital in October 1789 after the beginning of the French Revolution. Versailles is therefore famous not only as a building, but as a symbol of the system of absolute monarchy of the Ancien Régime. One of the largest, it is also considered one of the most beautiful palaces in the world. We visited Versailles on a day trip from Paris in the summer of 2010.

Leerdam is a city and municipality in the western Netherlands, in the province of South Holland. Leerdam is the most eastern town of the province of South Holland and is situated almost exactly in the middle of the three highways A2, A15 and A27. Leerdam received city rights in 1407. The small river Linge, bordered by beautiful water meadows, defines the atmosphere and tone of the landscape. Several centuries ago Leerdam formed a part of the Vijfheerenlanden domain, before it was raised to the level of County in 1498. In 1551, Leerdam, together with Acquoy, became property of the House of Orange and part of the County of Holland. The rich history of Leerdam can be found in well-kept historic buildings such as the Grote Kerk, the Hofje van Mevrouw van Aerden, the remaining and restored city walls on the Zuidwal and the Oude Raadhuis. Since the 18th century, the town`s culture has been strongly influenced by the glass industry and the timber industry. This, with the National Glass Museum, the Glass Centre, and several art galleries, make Leerdam a major tourist attraction in the Netherlands. We visited the AquaZoo Leerdam in the autumn of 2018.
