The moat and walls have been restored.Jan Amos Komensky (Comenius) was buried in the city, his mausoleum can be visited.Despite its earlier importance, Naarden's population was surpassed by Hilversum in the 18th century and today it is smaller than its neighbour Bussum.The city's distinctive shape made it a rallying point for Allied bombers returning to England after raids on Germany.Naarden was a separate municipality until 2015. On 1 January 2016, the municipality of Naarden merged with Muiden and Bussum to form the new municipality of Gooise Meren.GeographyThe city of Naarden is located in the municipality of Gooise Meren in the west of the Netherlands.
