Shopping in Holland

If you plan to visit one of the big cities in Holland, you are probably thinking of excellent museums, special architecture and good restaurants. In practice, however, many people like to fit in an afternoon of shopping as well. While one person likes fashion, shoes and jewellery, another loves art and design and yet another prefers literature and music. Fortunately Holland has countless special shops for each of them. And in many big cities, the shops are open on Sunday as well.
