The Netherlands anti-Amsterdam, this modern city lacks the historical buildings of Amsterdam, but shows off the future of the Netherlands.

This is a very nice major port city in the Dutch province of South Holland. Most of the buildings were destroyed in WWII and is more modern so there are not as many tourists here, less bicycles too. We like this city because it is easy to get around here and around the country.
