Utrecht Google Map is 25 miles from Amsterdam,and, with a population of 250,000 is the fourth largest city in Holland. We found it charming, with an old city section complete with canals, one of the handsomest art deco post offices you will ever see, a fine open-air market and an old and historic church, called the Dom, with a huge bell tower. All of this can be seen in our photos (Slideshow) and in a letter excerpt. Tourist board information
