925. Volendam is a town in North Holland in the Netherlands, in the municipality of Edam-Volendam. The village has about 21,000 inhabitants and is still growing. Volendam is a popular tourist attraction in the Netherlands. It's famous for its old fishing boats and the traditional clothing still worn by some residents. The women's costume of Volendam, with its high, pointed bonnet, is one of the most recognizable of the Dutch traditional costumes, and is often featured on tourist postcards and posters (although there are believed to be fewer then 50 women now wearing the costume as part of their daily lives, most of them elderly). There is a regular ferry connection to Marken, a peninsula close by. Volendam also features a small museum about its history and clothing style.
