Located in the flower-growing district, Leiden has been called the most beautiful city in the Netherlands. The town is mostly known for its university, the oldest in the country, and as the birthplace of Rembrandt van Rijn. Both distinctions strongly influence the small town. The people of Leiden are truly proud of their origins, which is evident by their annual festival "3 Oktober," the Leiden International Film Festival, and the night street markets that sell local products. The town has many spots for spectacular views of the surrounding area, old churches, and traditional Dutch windmills. Leiden is in South Holland Province.
