Several visitors enjoy a leisurely stroll while marveling at the beauty of an unknown park in 1950s Holland. Trees are planted throughout the gardens and provide ample shade on a warm day, and a small flower bed of crimson and violet tulips grows along the border of the sidewalk, almost looking like an extravagant field of jewels.
Because of the country's beautiful flowers and the level of care put into their growth, Holland has received the reputation of being the “flower shop of the world”. It was in the 16thcentury when its flower industry first began. The country imported tulips from the Ottoman Empire and expanded their market during the country's Golden Age. The beautiful tulips were greatly praised in various forms of artwork and festivals, and their admiration only continues to grow today.
