25 Best Destinations in Europe to Visit in 2017

#23 – Rotterdam – The Netherlands

For a city that was almost completely destroyed in the World War Two, Rotterdam looks as if not a single bomb landed on its ground. The city is located in the south of the Netherlands and it is commonly nicknamed “Gateway to the World” due to a large number of ports present in it.

The city’s charming riverside setting, rich maritime heritage, and a lively nightlife make it one of the most visited cities in Europe. When you arrive in Rotterdam, make sure to visit its attractions such as the Erasmus University, Schieland House, and the Lawrence Church.
