The city of 010, with its oddly-shaped skyscrapers and work hard/play hard-mentality. 800 years ago, Rotterdam settled as a fishermen’s village for its central location of Europe’s major rivers. Soon it would be an international trading place for the Netherlands and its neighboring countries, until the city center was destroyed during the WWII bombing.
