Volendam is a pretty port village in northern Holland. We can enjoy the scenery of cute houses; tiny, clean, and fabulous apartments and houses. They just remind me some kind of doll houses.
The most attractive and the most original thing in Volendam is a traditional costume of fishermen household. Unfortunately the costume for men is not very attractive because it is simply black. But the costume for women is really beautiful. Actually it is the costume used by the local Catholics of the village but any tourist can used it for photograph in some local studios. One of the studios is Foto de Boer, Haven 82, 1131 ET Volendam or you can visit www.fotoinvolendamkostuum.nl. As the costume for women is so attractive I saw a guy who was photographed in a woman costume ^_^ The price starts from ?39 each for two people. If you want to keep it in a CD you have to add ? 7 more.
