Giethoorn – a small village in the Netherlands – has something in common with Venice. It  has no roads and cars, only canals and bridges, and the loudest sound you can hear is the quacking of a duck or the noise made by other birds.

This magical place acquired its name due to the first inhabitants’ discovery of goat horns – remnants of a 10th-century flood.
