From old classic dutch houses in front of canals to ultra modern skyscrapers, passing by hectares of forests with inmense lakes inside the city. Which city which has the same and it has just 620.000 inhabitants like Rotterdam?











to



passing by lots of monuments, churches, cathedrals, museums... lots of antique buildings recreated and rebuilded...

And don't forget the small islets that Rotterdam has:





If this isn't diversity...

Rotterdam has an authentic modern vibe, while in London or Moscow, with the sykline being impressive, it always feels kind of out of place.

Well, I see some vanguardist skyscrapers in Rotterdam; like for example:











Plus some approved/under construction vanguardist buildings like those two:





The actual skyline looks like this:

PS. Only the last it's uploaded on Flickr (I've quoted the source and the copyright), the other photos doesn't have copyright.

That applies for the very center (like 90%), but not for the whole city.

Rotterdam has plenty of variation in building design but the silhouet of the skyline can get better, hence that most of the buildings are 100-150m tall. Zalmhaven is a good step forward.

True





It was the zone with the most beautiful buildings and with most of the old town... such a pity.

Sorry for the off topic. I will take profit of this post to put those 2 photos of The Hague (not the best for showing the overall skyline but a very beautiful perspective ):
