A very underrated city! Partly a bit grey, but one of the coolest cities in Europe architecture wise.

Cool pics! Love the picture of the two classic cars - 2CV and VW Beetle. I used to have a 2CV.

Rotterdam looks very innovative in terms of its built environment.

Well, after the sometimes boring reconstruction architecture and a bit of decline since the seventies, Rotterdam is changing fast during recent decades. New, exciting and colorful architecture and highrises form the Rotterdam skyline nowadays.

It seems to be quite common in harbour cities. We have one in Antwerp and in Bruges.
