Beautiful center of parliament! The fountain is fabulous. There is a lot of architecture to admire here, but there is not much more to do. It is nice to see a rather strong sense of security here to protect the area. Take a walk through here and enjoy the structures. Nice way to warm up to Mauritshuis, since it is right next door.
I did not know this place is the House of Representatives in the Netherlands although I am studying in this country. But it was a really good chance to know this country and how people can approach politic in normal days. It was quite impressive experience for me.
