A few Dutch naval ships were built in the Port of Constanţa.

The top right port, called 'Oudeschip' here, is actually named 'Eemshaven'. Oudeschip maybe a nearby village, but I've never met anyone naming this port after the village.

What a weird thread-title. Biggest harbours is a contradictio in terminis.

Rotterdam, Antwerp and Hamburg are ports.

A harbour is a nice cove or inlet for (fishing)boats, while a port is designed for handling ships rather then boats.

I've never heard anyone in my life talking about the 'harbour of Rotterdam'

Eteläsatama

Eteläsatama, or South Harbour in Helsinki, Finland. It is the largest passenger harbour in Finland, and 5.4 million passengers travel through it every year.

Nice map. Belgian ports are all on it.

Liège had a busy river port once but it declined a bit along with the industry. So I guess it's ok it is not on there.

Liège is still the first inland port of Belgium and the third inland port of Europe though. All has not always to be negative.

Yes, Liège Trilogiport project, and its increased cooperations with Rotterdam, Antwerpen and maybe Dunkerque, has the potential to make the Liège inland port the second of Europe, after Duisburg and equal to Paris; it's time to get a little recognition. There is no "decline", far from it.
