About Rotterdam Europoort
Rotterdam is the largest city in the province of South Holland in the Netherlands and the second largest municipality in the Netherlands after the capital Amsterdam. The Rotterdam port and industrial complex fulfils an important role as a hub for international goods flows and as a business location for industry and logistic services.
Rotterdam was founded in the mid 13th century as a small fishing village. The name Rotterdam has been derived from a dam in the Rotte river. At the beginning of the Second World War almost the entire city centre was heavily damaged by German raids. This explains why hardly any pre-war buildings have remained in this part of Rotterdam.
Rotterdam has many interesting museums as there is the well known the Boijmans-van Beuningen Museum, the Historisch Museum (Historical museum) and the Kunsthal a center for contemporary art. A visit to Rotterdam isn't complete without a visit to the Euromast, the highest lookout tower in the Netherlands or a boat excursion over the Nieuwe Maas and the Lek Rivers.
England attracts numerous visitors each year with its diverse culture, varied landscapes and rich history.
Many tourists stick to London with its many free museums and world famous monuments like Big Ben but England has a lot to offer you besides the capital. Don't just stick to London next time you visit.
There is plenty more to England than the capital city. The best way to explore it? In your own car of course.
Don't forget England is the home of Manchester - birthplace of Oasis and home of two of Europe's greatest football teams as well as the world famous university towns of Oxford or Cambridge.
