From Assen

Another postcard from Netherlands, this time Assen :)

Curiosity about Netherlands:
  • The world's oldest National Anthem is the  Dutch. His name is Wilhelmus and was composed between 1568 and 1572 in honor of William of Orange (martyr of independence from the Netherlands) and is used today as the official anthem of the country. The curious thing is that it only became official as the national anthem in 1932.

Warm Wishes!
