Rotterdam is a modern city, full of activity. Its harbour, the largest in the world, turns
it into an international centre of trade, business and culture. The city centre is famous
for its daring new architecture, as well as for the historic buildings in Delfshaven and
the old harbour. Together with Oporto, Rotterdam will be the cultural capital of Europe in
2001, and deservedly. The city is rich in art, its contribution to photography and film is
renowned and the museum Boijmans-Van Beuningen enjoys international recognition. Theatres,
cinemas and concert halls provide Rotterdam with a lively nightlife. The abundant presence
of restaurants and pubs of all nationalities give Rotterdam the special global atmosphere
in which everyone finds a place.
