Utrecht has not changed so much…

Utrecht map in 1652

Here’s a map of the city from 1652 (in this version north is to the left). I’ve marked where I live with the downward pointing red arrow. Much of what’s shown in this map is still very recognizable, from the canals to the Dom (tower and church at the center) to many of the streets. Click on the map above to see a big version.

Below is a current map – same area, just rotated about 90 degrees to put north at the top.  In this map, my place is just about at the ‘h’ in ‘Utrecht’.
