Delft enjoys a worldwide reputation for its pottery ("Delft Blue"). Its historic tree-shaded canals, monuments and museums all contribute to its renown as one of those Dutch towns which has retained its character from bygone days. The lawyer Hugo de Groot, the painter Johannes Vermeer and the naturalist Antoni van Leeuwenhoek were all born there, confirming Delft's reputation as the country's intellectual heart. It is also an important university centre, which adds to life in its small squares and narrow streets.
