2019 Bike trip to Sluis in the Netherlands, what a pleasure with lovely weather, 40 km together.
Early in the morning after a night with high temperatures and a less sleep, went I with my bicycle to this picturesque village.

Mude, as Sint Anna ter Muiden was originally called, received city rights in 1242. In the Middle Ages it was an important trading city and a port of Bruges. After the harbor was silted up in the 14th century, the city languished in favor of neighboring Sluis. In 1405, except for the church, Mude was completely burned down by the English. When the border between the Republic of the Seven United Netherlands and the Spanish Netherlands was established at the beginning of the 17th century, Mude finally found himself in the Republic. In order to subsequently distinguish it from Muiden in North Holland, the name of the patron was added to the place name. At that time, the role of Sint Anna ter Muiden had already been played. What remained was the small, rustic residential center that it still is today.
In 1880, the municipality of "Sint Anna Termuiden" was dissolved and added to the then municipality of Sluis. In 1995 this municipality became part of the municipality of Sluis-Aardenburg, which in turn merged with the larger merger municipality of Sluis.

I hope that you enjoy it
