Colouring postcards Greetings from London

As you already know, here in the Culture Tourist we’re all about combining art and travel together. About getting the right experiences when you’re travelling, learning about local art and culture.

It’s probably my favourite city in the Netherlands. Amsterdam is very beautiful, unique and classy, but Rotterdam is definitely its cooler younger brother. Why you should visit Rotterdam? For its stylish architecture At the beginning of the 20th Century Rotterdam was a very typical Dutch city, with its small brick houses and a cosy town feel. However, most of the old city centre was destroyed in bombing during the Second World War.…
