The first contrast to us is the building of the town of Ratushi, which is one of the few buildings in the town left entirely after the bombings of 1940. We analyze the sculptural form of the facade, which is named after us. Tell us what unique living animals live in the Rotterdam Zoo, where you will find a ship - a hotel, about how the corpse lives today and what hobbies in the world of living, new education and new education.

"The private tour with the phone app Questo was great! I really enjoyed visiting the sites and learning the history of the city. I think the trip could've been longer, stretching from Centraal Station all the way to the Euromast. It made the exploration of the city a lot of fun. Most of the clues were understandable and easily solved. A couple were a little difficult, but manageable with some help. I really liked the word puzzles and I think there could've been more puzzles with some of signs around the Cube Homes and bridges. I wish it were longer!! Awesome experience."..."
