Netherlands, Rotterdam – Modern City
heading (paragraph): Towns
If you are travelling to the Netherlands to learn about its history and landmarks Rotterdam is not the right place to be for it was almost completely obliterated by bombing during the WWII. Then it was rebuilt entirely. Still, do not throw this city away for there are many unique buildings and wonderful places to go. There is a modern marketplace in the center. There you can buy many Dutch delicacies, see the port or Erasmus University.
Let's see the south of the Netherlands. Close to Belgium and Germany, there is the city of Maastricht. Unlike other well-known famous places in the country, has its original looks. A few minutes in the city leaves you with feeling of historic atmosphere. Many sights, and buildings are well preserved. So let's see which places are worth visiting.
A small, and quite ordinary town in North Brabant province. This town is not only the birth place of the world famous Hieronymus Bosch. There are also many interesting places, and experiences to enjoy.
The most famous city in the Netherlands is known to everyone. Amsterdam is the main tourist attraction. Therefore, it is often overcrowded. Many, however, like less well known cities. If you count yourselves among such toursits, then there is we have great news. We know where to go.
Water mills, tulips, bicycles, water canals, cheese, thousand-year old cities. What do you think of when you hear the Netherlands? This small western-European country is one of the most popular spots among tourists from all around the world. It is great place for students, young couples, families with children, or those who postponed travelling to the end of their carriers.
Den Haag is surely the most attractive city in the Netherlands. Its atmosphere makes it a great competitor to the famous capital of this small yet rich country. If you think there is not much to surprise you than you are plain wrong.
Most stories about the capital of Netherlands conclude with something which shouldn’t be told to anyone else but the closest. However, Amsterdam is not just a city where crazy parties happen. If you sit on a bike and ride away from downtown you can experience the true Amsterdam, long away from Red Light District.
Haarlem used to be one of the most important cities in the Netherlands. Its name also became the name of one of the most famous districts in New York – Harlem. This beautiful, historical city is home to Dutch upper-middle class seeking to enjoy peace and greenery yet be close to the capital. It takes only 15 minutes to travel from Haarlem to Amsterdam. I can recommend to pay a visit to the city.
Last week we spent some time in Denmark in the second oldest but one of the most popular amusement parks in Europe - Tivoli. Today we visit the Netherlands. Home to the another popular park - Efteling.
Erasmus University, Europe’s largest port, and the city which was built almost from scratch after the WWII making it sandbox for many architects to unleash their creativity. Rotterdam is unlike any other Dutch city and this also holds true in Europe-wide perspective.
A guy sitting behind me is getting on fire. I do not understand from what for he drank only a third of a beer. But it is not very pleasant. For a while he annoys Ana sitting next to him. Fortunately, a very robust and kind black woman offers her to switch places.
We get up a bit earlier in the morning. Between eight to nine o’clock. We need to get to the center before our ticket will lost its validity. We pack our things and after a long breakfast and short farewell to Jell we set off to the main train station. Today, our schedule includes coffee so we find comfy armchairs under blossoming trees on the bank of one of the channels.
One of the most sought tourist spots in Europe is the second largest garden in the world. It is a place with the best smell that I have visited. It is an experience of a lifetime. Welcome to a beautiful garden of Keukenhof – several dozen of kilometers southwest from the Dutch capital.
