A culture is a melting pot of many things and one of those thing are their famous people who in some way made a difference. You know Tiesto en Afrojack are from Holland, but there are many more Dutch people who really left their mark around the world. Here is a short list of some of these famous Dutchies:

Johan Cruijf is one of the best Dutch football player in the history of Netherland. There was not one club where he played that lost. Both nationally and internationally. He played 8 season in Holland and 7 of those they won the championship title.
