Iam half Dutch, half Ukrainian , because my father was born at Eindhoven (Strijp) and my mam at Morshin (Striy) Ukraine.
IAt my travelogues i added all kinda pictures and info about family, meetings, and other about Eindhoven as well.
Eindhoven got its stadsrecht from Hertog Hendrik I van Brabant in 1232, with about 170 houses and a castle just outside the area.
The city also had 2 small rivers flowing, De Dommel and De Gender. Eindhoven also became the right to have a weekly market.
Eindhoven had its first horsetram in 1888.
In 1891 Philips starts a lightning factory on the Emmasingel and since then Philips had a big influence on the industry all over the world.
1920 de districts, Gestel, Stratum, Strijp, Tongelre and Woensel became part of Eindhoven and the city grew and grew.
1928 Daf (cars)came in the picture as well.
We have now over 200.000 people and we are the fifht city in the Netherlands.
