Gelderland is the largest and least densely populated province of the Netherlands. It is located in the eastern part of the country near the border with Germany. It has the oldest city of the Netherlands, Nijmegen and Arnhem, where very intense fighting took place during World War II.
The region is diverse in terms of landscape and includes large forest areas, meadows, marshes and arable fields. There is the famous Hoge Veluwe national park, where they live, among others mouflons, wild boars and deer. The whole area, covered with a dense network of walking and cycling routes, goes from coniferous forests to wetlands covered with grasses and reeds.
The capital of Gelderland is Arnhem, a city that was almost completely destroyed during the Allied offensive in 1944. a battle museum, a contemporary art museum, and a large open-air museum that brings closer Dutch culture.
The most monumental city in the province is Nijmegen with the well-preserved Old Town. In turn, Harderwijk has the world-famous Delfiniarium, and in Zutphen one of the largest churches in the Netherlands, Sint Walburgiskerk.
