Dutch Kremlin

Complete with towers, gates and arches

A Kremlin in a small Dutch town in North-Holland? Inspired by the Russian Barok, mythology and the Bible, villager Ger Leegwater, created his own Russian fairy tale. In a meadow, just outside the little village of Winkel, he built an impressive Dutch Kremlin, surrounded by statues, a fountain, and various other buildings. His secret ingredients? Lots of creativity and a pair of golden hands.

Little paradise

The most famous Kremlin of Russia is located at the Red Square in Moscow. The Dutch Kremlin is located in a typical Dutch landscape: a diked marsh with green grass. The owner of the place, Ger Leegwater, creates al the buildings on his own without a blueprint. He just starts to build and during the process something beautiful is shaped. In addition to the Kremlin he built a chappe;, a music wall, a loggia, a Maria-paviljon. Amongst the various towers he also built a large Neptune fountain.
