Although the Netherlands is fairly small, it has an abundance of cute little towns with a rich history worth exploring. I went to visit Baarn, a small town in the province of Utrecht, together with my friend Macha who grew up in the area. We found a tiny cemetery with a locked fence, which added extra excitement to our trip. The key was available at the local police station, so we picked it up and opened the gates to this tiny old graveyard, in Dutch literally named “oude begraafplaats”.
