Rotterdam, mix and match of architectural experimentation

Talking about architecture, I would indeed choose the word “architectural” to summarize Rotterdam. Buildings there are crazy, it is a mix and match of different styles and I’ve been so amazed by it. As you maybe know, the city has been destroyed during WWII, and became a place for architectural experimentations.

Strolling through the alleyways of Auray

Auray is a charming town, with cobbled streets and historic half-timbered houses, known particularly for its extremely picturesque harbour, Saint Goustan. Nowadays, it is a pleasant yachting harbour with an abundance of restaurants and bars at which to enjoy the lovely views.

The old city of Dordrecht celebrates its history

If you are looking to venture a city this summer, consider the old township of Dordrecht! Its rich history is still reflected in its medieval houses, merchant mansions, harbor quarters with warehouses, museums and churches. Dordrecht has almost 1,000 monuments to justify this.
