Netherlands: Den Haag – Road to Train Station

Published: 23.5.2014
It is already several weeks since we were together in the Hague. Today, we return to this city for one last walk.

HaagIf you go Netherlands for the first time, this country will have a really positive effect on you. First things you will note is that everything is in order. Everything is clean, well-maintained, historical houses are in great shape, people are smilling, public transportation is perfect, however, more expensive than we are used to.

If you are going to mostly walk in the Hague and not use the public transportation that much, you should probably buy individual tickets – 3 euros a piece. Also you can buy a daily ticket for 8 euro. If you are going to stay in the Hague for a longer time, you can buy the OV Card, on which you put credit and travel by public transportation more affordably than if you bought individual tickets.

HaagAnyway, lets get back to the streets of the Hague. From my hotel, located in a middle-class neighborhood, I headed to the city center, the main train station. The ride by a perfectly quiet tram took about 20 minutes. Meanwhile I could watch the streets of the Hague.

After I arrived at Haag Centraal, the main train station, HaagI was truly impressed. The train station was undergoing a renovation that is planned to end this year. Its capacity will increase and it will also get a new look that will make it modern and attractive building fitting well into the architectonic style of the 21st century.

I get off on a heightened tram stop with many others who were hurrying to work, school or just walk in the city. Below were several train platforms and busy life of the train station.

I was very thirsty. Right at the train station I stop at some small shop selling all kinds of sweets, sandwiches, beers, juices, magazines and so on. There, for the first time, I was confronted with local prices that were not very friendly. However, I subjugated and bought something tasty.

The Hague is bit expensive city for folks from the Czech Republic or Slovakia. If you are not going to eat in fastfoods and you do not want to pay for local 16 eur menus that are not particularly tasty, you have to count on paying about 20 euros for a meal.

However, there are realy many restaurants in the Hague. I believe you will find some that will meet your desires.

I am falling with Netherlands more and more. During my third visit in this country, in April 2014, I was enchanted by Utrecht. It used to be the most important Dutch city south of Amsterdam. Its population of slightly more than 300,000, is perfectly suited to a group of cities that are not too small but not too big. If we add to this the fact that there is the largest university in the country, it is clear that it will be a quiet and pleasant city, which is on the other hand really alive.
