Overijssel is a province of the Netherlands, situated on the country’s central-eastern side. The cities, including the capital Zwolle, have rich histories shown in the medieval monuments, which may be found here and there, contrasting with the modern office buildings. In some of the province’s historic villages, rural life remains in its traditions. Overijssel is a greenish province and, as it is common in the Netherlands, it is marked by water bodies across the territory. For a great holiday, besides the tour to the cities, the province offers natural reserves to explore, amusement parks and resort places over a waterfront, as in Vollenhove Marina.
