Map of Vlissingen
Flushing (Dutch: Vlissingen) is a port town in the Dutch province of Zeeland. It is the second largest town of Zeeland with 34,000 inhabitants. The town is industrial in character and is connected by a large canal to Middelburg and onwards to the inland lake of Veerse Meer. Flushing is well known because of its 2.6 km long boulevard.
Trains depart every 30 minutes for Middelburg (7 minute ride) and Goes (21 minute ride)
Middelburg is in the capital of Zeeland. It is an old city and the centre has a small canal ringing about half of it. This is lined with boats and cycleways and is very nice to see and also quite Dutch looking. The centre is dominated by a large square where markets are often held overlooked by a large townhall. Around this is the shopping area, most of which is pedestrianised.
Goes is situated in the middle of the province of Zeeland. It's part of an area called Zuid-Beveland. Traditionally, the farmers, townspeople and country folk of Zuid-Beveland would come to Goes to do their shopping and if you’re in Goes on market day (Tuesdays), you’ll see that they still do.
In most cities and villages in Zeeland Sunday as a day of rest is strictly adhered to and no shop will be opened.
In terms of food there is nothing more typical of Zeeland than eating mussels.
