Papenstraat Zwolle

This narrow street in Zwolle is named Papenstraat, or Pastor Street, because the home of ´den Pape´ ('de pastoor', 'the Pastor') was located here until 1580. Before that this street was called Keizerstraat, Emperor Street, named after emperor Frederick III who gave Zwolle permission to manufacture coins.

  4. Only 1580? I guess they ought to call it "New Street" then. :-)
