  • During our stay in the low countries we visited the Tsar Peter the great House! We have therefore made 320 years in history... this old building of 3 centuries contains a quite special atmosphere... We have been perfectly filled in by the guide. Must see if you are in the area...

  • The town is located near Amsterdam Zaandam. There, if you go along the main street, you can find the House of King Peter. Caretaker-Russian, very sociable and interesting man. Even the neighbors-the Dutch are looking for ways to attract more tourists to this unique place.

  • OK it sounds a bit boring.. but it is actually well worth the effort of finding and visiting. This is the actual house (+ required restoration and stabilisation of course) complete with genuine 19thC ...  more »

  • It's one of the Oldest house in Holland, which in Zaandam only 20 minute by bus from Amsterdam. Small house but great history.
  • Very interesting history, considering it's one of the oldest wooden houses in the Netherlands and that Peter lived there while working as a carpenter!!
  • Small but nice history of the short stay of the tsar Peter the great
  • Cute 'museum' - it's very tiny though, just the house in its 'shell'. Has some nice interpretive signs, but you can see it all in a half hour.
  • Nice little exhibition about the 8 days (yes, an underwhelming 8 days) that Czar Peter the Great spent in Zaandam, and then disappointedly decided to go to England for more methodical war ship building.
