Euromast, Rotterdam, Holland (2014)

As the third largest city in Holland, Rotterdam is a modern port city with a skyline of skyscrapers and few traditional Dutch buildings. It had been rebuilt completely after being bombed during World War II.

During our brief stay, we visited the Euromast. Designed by architect, Hugh Maaskant, in the 1960s, the Euromast’s structure represents a ship’s mast with a crow’s nest, where one can see an amazing panorama of the city. Today, the structure is 185 meters (~607 feet) tall and one of the highest structures in Rotterdam.

Additional Comments

Unfortunately, we were not given sufficient time to explore the city. Still, it would be worth visiting again.
