Dutch landscapes

"A tour in Holland is a tour through the first books of Euclid" is a saying by the English writer Aldous Huxley about the mathematical division of Dutch landscapes.
A country as small as the Netherlands has nevertheless six distinguishable types of landscape, unique in the world and, according to Unesco, well worth preserving.
These landscapes of peat, river clay, dunes and sea clay are not far apart so that a tour can easily give an impression of various areas. One such area, a sea claypolder, was recently added to the Unesco World Heritage list.
There are not many countries in the world with such a large diversity of nature and environment on such a small surface area. So it is not surprising that the low-lying Netherlands can boast some beautiful wetlands.
