The Poems of Leiden

Leiden is unique and charming in so many ways but something that sets it apart even further is the poems. Poetry written in lots of different language to ever embrace the international vibe omnipresent in the university city. You see them everywhere! On the sides of buildings, down narrow streets, in hidden gardens, inside a book store on a main road or just on walls as you pass by. It’s common to stumble upon them and you always know of those ones you pass all the time during your day to day lives. But what I didn’t realise was just how many of them there are in places not so obvious. Over the last couple of days I went on a mission to find and photograph as many as I could find within the old city walls! It was even more rewarding that I expected because I explored parts of Leiden that I never even knew existed! It’s always really rewarding when you find the poems you can read, but ever exciting to learn to read some of the others.
