The city of Delft
The 28th edition of the EURAS Conference takes place in the beautifu historic city of Delft. The city of Delft Blue, the House of Orange and Johannes Vermeer.
The name Delft is synonymous with porcelain, and this town of 85,000 is justifiably famous for the blue-and-white pottery that Italian immigrant potters began making here in the 1600s. Still, you needn’t be a dinnerware fan to enjoy Delft, which flourished as the 17th Century headquarters of the Dutch East India Company and was home to one of Holland’s greatest painters, Jan Vermeer.
But the greatest attraction of Delft is the town itself-or at least the historic city center, which is crammed with 17th and 18th Century houses, streets that overlook canals, magnificent public buildings, outdoor markets, and a surprising number of museums.
