Rotterdam as the only city in the southern part of the Randstad, that's what people in Rotterdam would like to hear. But the Southern part of this urban area consists of two big cities, Rotterdam and The Hague. The Hague is another city with its own urban area, not exactly a part of Rotterdam. Rotterdam is the main center for approximately 1 million.

Btw: The population of the whole Randstad is 7 million, that includes Amsterdam also. So 6.7 million for just Rotterdam is a bit lot exaggerated.

My capital city may be Warsaw but I must say that Frankfurt is #1 when it comes to skylines in Europe!

1. Frankfurt
2. Paris
3. Warsaw



As for Rotterdam I think it is absolutely amazing what they did with that city, I would love to visit one day!

(of course, a few towers missing here, and it seems to be an older pic, but nonetheless a great shot)



(obviously no telephoto pictures, so no faked density here or such)

I have seen pictures of worse quality taken with supposedly good cameras and then photoshopped to death! So I prefer a well-done mobile phone picture showing what is essential: The skyline.... This is one good angle! Thanks for sharing!
