THE HAGUE - City of Justice

Hi, I'm gonna update this thread once in a while. I don't live in the Hague so I'm not updating this really frequently.

Some facts:

The Hague is the city where the International court is located. Lot of suspects that have been sued Internationally get prosecuted here.

The Hague houses the complete Dutch government.

~480.000 inhabitants [Metro 2,5 million]

Currently U/C: Wijnhavenkwartier [146m x 2, 132m], New Babylon [142m + 102m]

Tallest completed buildings:
Hoftoren - 142m
Strijkijzer - 132m
Prinsenhof - 128m
Castalia - 104m

Je bent wel een beetje zuinig geweest met het inwoners aantal van Den Haag.

I think it's 4 million...

Anyway, fantastic pics from Ni3IS, as usual! The city looks great and I'm looking forward to our stay in about 2 weeks. Anything not to be missed over there?
