Friesland was a country long before Holland, but now it's a province of The Netherlands. The Frisian language is still spoken by many, and both Frisian and Dutch names are used on signs. The flag is really pretty too.

Stavoren is an old Hanseatic town and one of 11 cities of the 11-city skating race of Hans Brinker and the Silver Skates fame. It's really small and surrounded by countryside. Very nice.
