  Many pictoresk villages on the river "Vecht"
by Pavlik_NL

Yes, it's quite different from Brooklyn along the Hudson ...
Breukelen is a village that is situated in the beautiful Vecht-valley and so holds very nice views over this little river running from Utrecht to Muiden (near Amsterdam). The village itself is already long time here, but the blossomingperiod came when many rich traders from Amsterdam seeked out the green clean environment along the shores of the river "Vecht" and built their mansions, teahouses and estates in parkstyle here. Of course Breukelen, as well as many other places along the small river, became a "royal" place to live and ... it never has lost that charm, though also commoners like you and I now can enjoy the beauty of this surroundings on a bike or boattour along or on the "Vecht".
