Rotterdam is the second-largest city in The Netherlands and a place that had to be almost totally rebuilt after the destruction of the Second World War. This rebuilding, which continued throughout the 20th century, has given Rotterdam a vibrant cosmopolitan feel and a backdrop of eye-catching contemporary architecture. One survivor from the war is the City Hall built in the Art Deco style in 1914. Modern art can be explored in the award-winning Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, while the contemporary Markthall with its food stalls, cafes, colourful ceiling and escalators has become a landmark since opening in 2014. In a city full of striking architecture, Rotterdam Central Station and The Cube House really stand out as photo opportunities.
