The Zaanstreek is a region of the Netherlands and one of the oldest industrial areas of Europe. The residents of this area are known as 'Zaankanters'. The Zaanstreek is also home to the 'Zaanse Schans', an open air museum of old Zaan region homes, warehouses, and mills that were transferred here from all across the region in the 50's and 60's. The Zaanstreek used to be the bread basket of the Netherlands thanks to important industries such as wood processing and various food products. At its height, around 1720, there were around 600 mills in use simultaneously.
