Article/video on the BBC: instead of roads, they have canals. Link here. I thought that some people might be interested.

There is also something like this in Germany: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lehde_(Spreewald) (sorry only German).

Venice? There are pedestrian "streets" but they are footpaths really, all traffic is on water apart from a little bit at the end of the causway.

That said, you could hardly call it a thriving industrial and commercial city.

Pictures must have been short very early in the morning or late in the evening. Giethoorn is quite a tourist trap in The Netherlands. You would not want to live there if you were looking for rest and quiet.
