The court pond in the Hague with at the right the old Parlement buildings. The yellow building at the left is the "Mauritshuis" a just renovated museum and last week opened by the King.
I passed by when the last preparations were done by some men on the roof.
A view of the building in all its glory, it looks almost completely new now. The building dates from 1644 and is one of the most famous Dutch classicist buildings. Count Johan Maurits van Nassau-Siegen (1604-1679) commisioned architect Jacob van Campen, most famous of his time, to build the house which now bears his name the "Mauritshuis". They have a great collection of paintings by old masters, as the "Girl with with a Pearl Earring" by Vermeer. I have to go soon for a look inside.
