The Hague, standing on the turbulent shores of the North Sea, is considered the political capital of the Netherlands. The offices of such important organizations as the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Court and the Permanent Court of Arbitration are located here. Perhaps that is why The Hague is perceived as a strict and serious city, where there is no place for entertainment.
But the first impression is wrong. Tourists here will find an incredible number of interesting museums, palaces, shady parks and even a real beach, no matter how strange it may be for a northern city. And, nevertheless, the Scheveningen area of The Hague is a prestigious resort with a well–maintained coastline, where you can have a great rest, enjoying the seascapes and even get a tan, provided that you are lucky with the weather.
