Visit to Sloten
In this 1000 year old village Sloten, that managed to keep its pittoresque villageview, on the villagesquare there still is an old working waterpump.
Here you will also find the smallest police-station of the Netherlands and a historic fire-alarm.
A little further there is a “banpole” dating from 1794 which indicated the point how far criminals were allowed to approach Amsterdam.
In 1921 Sloten was annexed to Amsterdam.
