MADURODAM, HAGUE (NETHERLANDS)

Madurodam is a beautiful miniature city sited in Scheveningen, The Hague, in the Netherlands. It is a mesmerizing imitation of a Dutch town on a small scale of 1:25, composed of identical Dutch buildings and landmarks that are placed at various locations in the country. It is an admired Dutch tourist attraction, constructed in the year 1952. Millions of travelers visit Madurodam Hague, every year, from different places of the world. The best thing about this mesmerizing miniature is that it is truly identical to the real city. This stunning miniature city has adopted its name from George Maduro, who was a Jewish law student from Curaçao.
George Maduro fought against the Nazi occupation forces, becoming a significant part of the Dutch resistance and died at the first Nazi concentration camp opened in Germany called Dachau concentration camp in the year 1945. You would be amazed to know that George Maduro was lately awarded the medal of Knight fourth class of the Military Order of William, which is the biggest and oldest military decoration in the empire of the Netherlands. This award was to honor his achievements and deeds he had demonstrated in the fight of the Netherlands opposite German troops. Further, the parents of George Maduro has a made a great contribution in building this miniature city by donating funds for the project.
Later, on 2nd July, 1952, the teenaged princess Beatrix, the first daughter of Queen Juliana of the Netherlands and Prince Bernhard of Lippe-Biesterfeld, was appointed mayor of Madurodam, after which she was given a trip of her town. Princess Beatrix was married to Claus von Amsberg in the year 1966, and raised three children together, namely, Prince Willem-Alexander, Prince Friso and Prince Constantijn. Beatrix became the queen of Netherlands after her mother renounced her post. After becoming the queen, Beatrix resigned her post. In today’s time, Madurodam’s mayor is appointed by a youth municipal council, which houses 25 pupils from schools in the province.
