This fairytale village hasn’t changed for centuries, and that’s the whole charm of it!

Still in existence on our planet are places that are so beautiful that their existence is considered unrealistic. Beautiful scenery remains intact primarily where people live in harmony with nature and adapt to what it gives them. They do not change the environment into power or to their own benefit.

This is what it is like in the small Dutch village of Giethoorn, which is known for the fact that people living there get around by boat. As a result, not even one car is able to disturb the silence in the area.

Nearly 49 miles (90 kilometers) of water channels form a transportation route.


Residents voted for peace and quiet, which is why the boats that are powered, have very quiet electric motors mounted on them.
