Dutch Windmills

The Netherlands is so closely associated with windmills, that it's often the first fact people recall about the country. The Dutch built windmills for many centuries.To some extent, the windmills built the country itself, since without them much of the land drainage (like 40%) could not have occured. It's about 1150 remaining windmills in the Netherlands.Here below some pics depicting this amazing home-construction:
