The National Gallery, in the background, is home to an excellent permanent collection of art, both modern and traditional. It also hosts major international temporary exhibits. Admission to the permanent collection is free, so you can enjoy it a little bit at a time, returning often, instead of being overwhelmed on a single visit. In the foreground are just a few of the tulips that are virtually everywhere in the capital in late April and early May.

1999 Richard McGuire
