Netherlands: Utrecht

Don't go to Utrecht. It's not cooler or more relaxed than Amsterdam, there aren't lovely bakeries and lunch spots along the canal, and there definitely aren't any bicycles to rent. ;) Some Dutchies prefer to keep Utrecht a secret from hordes of tourists, so I promised I wouldn't sing Utrecht's praises!

 What used to be a large cathedral is now a remaining wall, spots to mark the old pillars, and a photo commemoration

 Near one of the canals is a lovely green space, bordered by residential housing with cobbled streets.
