The Hague is the largest Dutch city on the North Sea, the seat of the government and also the place where Queen Beatrix lives. The city center is pretty, with nice government buildings, stately mansions, good museums (Mauritshuis, Panorama Mesdag) and a nice square. It is culturally diverse, with many foreign pubs, shops and cultural events. The Hague comprises two distinct beach towns. The main beach resort Scheveningen, in the northwestern part of the city, is a popular destination for tourists. Kijkduin, in the southwest, is the other beach resort.
