Dutch Park in Ohrid, Macedonia

A. den Doolaard generated with the publication of his novels “Oriënt-Express” in 1934 and “The Wedding of the Seven Gypsies” in 1939 an extraordinary interest in Macedonia. For decades Dutch are among the most numerous tourists in Macedonia, and this leads to a wide cooperation between Macedonia and the Netherlands in different fields. Therefore, Macedonians express a great respect for the Dutch writer.
