Dutch cities series: Leiden and its surroundings

Posted on: June 24, 2013 by Nataliya Volosovych | No Comments
Leiden is a city located on Old Rhine, not far from the Hague and Amsterdam. It is a university city since 1575. This I just have to quote from Wikipedia: “The University of Leiden is famous for its many developments including Snells law (by Willebrord Snellius), the famous Leyden jar, a capacitor made from a glass jar, invented in Leiden by Pieter van Musschenbroek in 1746. Another development was in cryogenics: Heike Kamerlingh Onnes (1913 Nobel prize winner in physics) liquefied helium for the first time (1908) and later managed to reach a temperature of less than one degree above the absolute minimum. Albert Einstein also spent some time at Leiden University during his early to middle career.”

 It is pretty to be explored from the water by boat and on foot.
