No. of pictures: 64 pictures
Rotterdam is situated along coast of North Sea. It is the second greatest town of the Netherlands. You can find there the biggest port in Europe, known as „A Gate to Europe“. It was very busy port of all over the world, for relatively long time period. Shanghai Port in China outstripped Rotterdam recently.
Great part of photogallery is dedicated to photos from boat sightseeing navigation trip. This survey offers, except beautiful outlooks towards admirable town´s architecture, a possibility to have a look at this gigantic port. Although Rotterdam is an important industrial centre, it would be a surprise for you how many green surfaces are surrounding you. On the other hand, a bicycle belongs to most ecological and used way of transport not only in Rotterdam but generally in the whole Netherlands.

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.
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.
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.
I am falling with Netherlands more and more. During my third visit in this country, in April 2014, I was enchanted by Utrecht. It used to be the most important Dutch city south of Amsterdam. Its population of slightly more than 300,000, is perfectly suited to a group of cities that are not too small but not too big. If we add to this the fact that there is the largest university in the country, it is clear that it will be a quiet and pleasant city, which is on the other hand really alive.
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.
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.
It is already several weeks since we were together in the Hague. Today, we return to this city for one last walk.
The third largest city in Netherlands is located on the Northern Sea.
We were impressed by Rotterdam, a beautiful Dutch city. It is a combination of large industrial center with beautiful city greenery and many attractions for locals and visitors who come here from every corner of the world.
Once upon a time there was a magic land. A land where wind and breeze permanently resided and in this land there was an open-air museum of windmills – Zaanse Schans.
When you say the Netherlands everybody think of wind mills. These are symbol of this prosperous country and have been for a long time. The mills were built to drain water and dry terrain in lower attitude. Such mills are all across the Netherlands. There are, however, several places where you can see more than just one or two.
