The great port city of Rotterdam is a close rival to Amsterdam, not only in football but also as a hub of culture, with world-renowned annual poetry and film festivals, as well as some of Europe’s most astounding modern architecture. This innovative, forward-looking and enterprising city takes pride in what it likes to call its working class.
