Rotterdam is now the second largest city in the country, with 620,000 inhabitants. In the 19th century the original small fishing village on the river Rotte developed into a huge harbor. Rotterdam is the largest port in Europe and the 8th port in the world, located on the Nieuwe Maas, the confluence of the rivers Maas and Rijn. The North Sea is 30 km away. Maritime shipping and river traffic come together here.

World War II 

At the beginning of WW II, on May 10th 1940, Rotterdam was bombed by Nazi Germany and the city center was completely destroyed. Reconstruction after WW II offered the opportunity to implement innovations and introduce unusual architecture. The multi-cultural town is versatile and lively, the museums exhibit interesting art collections.
