Delft

Delft has a lot to offer! The city is well-known for its ties with the Netherlands Royal family (tombs of William of Orange and members of the Royal family) and the famous painter Vermeer. Delft is also world renowned for its Delft Blue earthenware and its lovely canals. Delft has a pleasant, well-preserved, lively historical centre, with characteristic canals, ancient merchant houses, old churches and the splendid city hall. Delft is more than 750 years old. The city owes its name to the word 'delving', digging the oldest canal, the Oude Delft. In 1246, Delft received its city franchise from the Dutch Earl Willem II. Delft is nicknamed 'de Prinsenstad' (the Prince's City), because William of Orange, the first in the Dutch royal line, held court in Delft in the 16th century. In 1842 the Royal Academy for Civil Engineers was founded. The Academy used the building vacated by the artillery school. The Academy of then is the TUDelft of today, which is also the largest employer in Delft.

Delft is synonymous with ceramics - 'Delft Blue' has been produced in this city for many centuries. At the end of the 16th century Flemish potters started to make imitations of southern European pottery. Because of the Spanish occupation, some of them fled from Antwerp to Delft and they provided the origins of the Delftware industry. Between the years 1600 and 1800 Delft was one of the most important ceramics producers in Europe.
