one of the most floral parks in the world

Traveling through Europe , in the Netherlands we visited Keukenhof Park (Keukenhof). This is a wonderful park of flowers. We were there during the holidays in May. At that time tulips are blooming. There are so many that you can’t tell, millions. Different colors.

It was so worth it to see, it was amazing.

I was in this park in May 2017 when we were traveling in Holland. The park was very impressive. We were there in the morning, so it wasn’t crowded, which was also nice. The entrance fee was 15-20 euros (about 1000-1500.

It was a beautiful, modern park.

The park is huge, but also there are a lot of tourists, so to have the beautiful pictures without the Chinese under each tulip you should come half an hour before the opening of the park. Tulips are already blooming in May, so.

A place of pure beauty and flower kingdom.

Even though I practically live in Holland already, but I learned about this magically beautiful place from the Internet. Well, you know, there are such lists of “the best…” and so on. That list was called “10 must-see places” or something.

In the middle of the 19th century, the owners of the manor chose renowned landscape architects, a father and a son named Zocher, who designed the Vondelpark, to enhance the grounds in the tradition of English parkland design with lawns, fountains and walking paths.

The pavilions of Keukenhof Park

In addition to bulbous plants planted outdoors, there are pavilions with greenhouses, where florists compete in skill, making amazing compositions of cut and potted flowers.

Juliana/Tulpomania Pavilion is named after Queen Juliana, who ruled from 1948 to 1980. The exhibits focus on the history of the “tulip boom.” It tells how the flower first came to Holland and caused such a sensation that a period of tulip mania began. There was a real hunt for rare varieties, in which practically the whole population took part – from the seamstresses and chimney sweepers to the noblemen and members of the government. On one occasion a buyer paid the equivalent of $100,000 for a single bulb. Those who managed to obtain or produce a new hybrid made a fortune at the height of the frenzy. In one market town, tulips were worth 10 million guilders. At the time, the assets of the British East India Trading Company, the most powerful corporation of colonial Britain, were valued at the same price on the stock exchange.

The information stand informs about the structure and features of tulips, different stages of bulb development are clearly shown. Visitors can learn about the layered planting of bulbs, which was invented by the Dutch to create beds of long-lasting blooms. In general, the purpose of the pavilion is educational in nature. For example, beginner flower growers are explained under what humidity and light to store bulbs to prevent their premature germination and achieve good germination.

The Oranje Nassau Pavilion is named after the royal dynasty. While the lion’s share of the park belongs to tulips, other representatives of the blooming flora are favored here. Art objects are made up of chrysanthemums, calla lilies, gerberas, roses and alstromerias. Master classes in arranging and floristry are held for all comers.

Flower and bulb purchase

Bouquets and seedlings presented in the showcases can be bought. Under Dutch law, it is allowed to take no more than 5 kg of bulbs or tubers per person, but transporting them to Russia may cause problems at customs. The Russian law “On Plant Quarantine” explicitly prohibits the importation of bulbs into the country. Sanitary inspection officers have the full right to seize the “contraband”. Only plants devoid of rooting, i.e. the flower must not be in the soil, but in the so-called substrate, can be imported unhindered. In this case you must have an international phytosanitary certificate, and such a document is valid not more than 15 days. Therefore, planting material for the cultivation of flowers in the countryside or in the apartment is easier to buy in the country.
