Rotterdam, the second largest Dutch city and the largest European seaport, is very young and dynamic indeed. It is famous for its modern architecture, design and ubiquitous creativity. During the day it is the cradle of festivals and performances, while at night it pulsates with life that is impossible to forget. The city landscape is constantly changing – traditional architecture of cubic homes called "cubicles" or high-rise buildings such as Montevideo in Kop van Suid and the non-symmetrical Erasmusbrug bridge are evidence of the dynamic character of this harbour city. A sweet end of a visit to Rotterdam is beyond doubt a cruise through the port and view of the city from the sea.

Den Haag is the third largest Dutch city. Located here is not only the Dutch government, parliament and the queen, but also many international organizations such as the International Court of Justice. Seat of the Dutch government and parliament in the city center, a group of historic buildings known Binnenhof. Adjacent Picture Gallery Mauritshuis is exhibiting works by artists such as Rembrandt van Rijn, Johannes Vermeer, Paulus Potter and Jan Steen. The Netherlands offers a hand to Madurodam, miniature models of complex material and typical buildings from all over the country. A well-known local tourist destination is the beach of Scheveningen, best known image of Vincent van Gogh.
