Groene Hart

The Groene Hart (green heart) is the rural region hemmed in by Utrecht, Amsterdam, Leiden and Rotterdam. It contains some of the oldest villages in the Netherlands, with a landscape made up of old farms, willow-bordered ditches and early polders (areas of reclaimed land). Numerous infrastructure projects, such as the high-speed train link to Brussels, have been delayed because of their impact on this sensitive region.
