Postcrossing # 43
Here’s another great addition to my growing collection of map cards. This is from Wim, a Postcrosser from a small Dutch village called Wezep. He has been a member of Postcrossing for over 7 years and has sent almost 2000 postcards already. It would surely be interesting to see the various kinds of postcards that he has received over the years (according to his profile, he has received 1,831 postcards). Thanks, Wim !
The Royal Palace in Amsterdam (Dutch: Koninklijk Paleis Amsterdam or Paleis op de Dam) is one of three palaces in the Netherlands which is at the disposal of Queen Beatrix by Act of Parliament. The palace was built as city hall during the Dutch Golden Age in the seventeenth century. The building became the royal palace of King Louis Napoleon and later of the Dutch Royal House. It is situated in the west side of Dam Square in the centre of Amsterdam, opposite the War Memorial and next to the Nieuwe Kerk.
This postcard is from Auke, a stamp and postcard collector from Almere. Thank you, Auke !
