The story of Naarden-Vesting

Naarden, situated on a sandy ridge on the shore of the former Zuiderzee, used to be the only access road from the east to the County of Holland and the merchant city of Amsterdam. Due to this military-strategic location, Naarden developed into one of the most important fortress towns of the Netherlands through the centuries, and was often fought over.
