Photographer's Note

The Hague is the seat of the Dutch government, parliament and royal family, the city is called the capital of the Netherlands although the constitutional capital is Amsterdam.
In my photo you can see the Binnenhof, a complex of buildings next to the Hofvijver (lake) in the heart of the city. It is the former Gothic castle of the Counts of Holland built in the 13th century, since 1584 it is the political centre of Dutch Republic.
Today it is home to both houses of the States General of the Netherlands and of the Dutch government.
