Rotterdam in a Day (part 3)

Last fall, when we traveled through Europe, we spent 1 day in Rotterdam. I did not know anything about Rotterdam other than it’s in the Netherlands and that there’s this remarkable bridge – Erasmus bridge. But that one day became the most vivid memory of our trip (the gardens of Versailles is the second best).  This is where we began our day and this is where we ended up. This post is a promise given to Restless Jo – I’m posting all the photos of Rotterdam we had taken during our visit, except those I had already blogged about.

This is what we saw from the window of our room. To the left is the red bridge we walked on, to the right is the glimpse of the iconic Erasmus Bridge. A freight vessel in the middle.

Some views of the city:

Parks and canals – and ducks 🙂

And finally the icon of Rotterdam – Erasmus Bridge. It’s massive despite its seemingly light and airy construction!  Oh, and its nickname is the Swan 🙂

I hope you enjoyed a day in Rotterdam and will consider visiting this fascinating city next time you are around!

  2. Isn’t it a beauty? The Swan is perfect! 🙂 And I love the little canal bridge with the weeping willows too, Elena. A promise fulfilled and many thanks for the mention. 🙂 Hope your week is happy!
