The Hague is much quieter and quieter than Amsterdam. The streets here are slightly wider, which gives it a more continental look. The city is full of typical 17th century Dutch Renaissance buildings, as well as 18th century baroque and classic houses. Surprisingly cute and eclectic houses from the 19th century are found in the surrounding area - a striking example of the Art Nouveau style. In the last 10 years, buildings of modern architecture have also begun to appear in The Hague. For example, the Town Hall Central Library by the American architect Richard Meyer, the Snoeptrommel shopping center, popularly known as the "Candy Box".
