Gouda Cheese Central
This is the dilapidating building of the Gouda Cheese Central. Gouda cheese does not necessarily comes from Gouda but is made by Gouda cheese standards. So Gouda cheese also came from Woerden. Gouda is a city close by, just 15 min by train (the next stop). Holland is really just a very small densely populated country.
City in the west of the Dutch province Utrecht, founded by the Romans in 40 AD as a castellum at the Northern Fronteer of the Roman Empire. Received city rights in 1372, forensic city for North and South Holland's bigger cities, 33.650 inhabitants.
Woerden Community contains the towns and villages: Harmelen, Kamerik and Zegveld.
