Нас ждет один из самых дорогих и красивых мостов Европы – мост - лебедь, который держится на одном пилоне и гордо возвышается над бурными водами реки Маас. Мы пройдемся с Вами по аллеи памяти и скорби 2й Мировой и вспомним о том, что у нас была одна общая огромная трагедия в прошлом. Ярким контрастом для нас будет здание городской Ратуши, которое одно из немногих объектов в городе осталось целым после бомбардировки 1940 г мы проанализируем скульптурное оформление фасадов, которое имеет особое смысловое наполнение. Я расскажу Вам какие уникальные животные живут в роттердамском зоопарке, где находиться корабль - отель, о том как живет королевство тюльпанов сегодня и какое хобби у его короля, о новых тенденциях в системе образования и какая стоимость жизни.
