The Hague (Den Haag) is the national seat of Government - situated in the Dutch province of South Holland. As the Hague is the seat of the government of the Kingdom of The Netherlands it has many official institutes and ministry buildings. The Hague is situated southwest of Amsterdam.

Among the many treasured museums in the city is the small Royal Collection of Paintings in the Mauritshuis. Relatively small in size, the museum is like a jewel box, and its holdings include important paintings by the Dutch masters Vermeer, Rembrandt, Hals, Steen, Potter and many others. Nearby is the inner court of the Counts of Holland, now the Houses of Parliament. A little further is the tree-lined lane with the stately Embassies.

The Hague is also known for its vast municipal Gemeentemuseum, whose geometric-inspired yellow brick architecture is a masterwork by Dutch architect Berlage. It houses the worldís best collection of the works of painter Piet Mondriaan. Various historical collections include fashion halls and an extremely fine 17-th century dollsí house. The varied collection includes pottery, design, paintings.

On the way back we may go past the International Court of Justice, a building founded to promote peaceful solutions to international conflicts. Hugo Grotius, an author from 17th c. Delft was one of the first men to come up with the idea that states should make peace, not war. Het wrote the treatise on International Law at Sea.
