Cities in Netherlands have urban developing problems that make cityscapes neither European nor American, right in between, disharmonious way.

The Netherlands understands how to build cities perhaps better than any other country on earth. The fact that they are all so accessible to one another makes it even better. Beautiful pictures of a great city!

Edit made: nm. Too easy to feed the trolls.

Weird comment...

Especially since it's made by someone living in Belgium, the country with the most disharmonious build environment I'm aware of.

Anyway, great pics as always!

The Hague has skyscrapers, Netherlands second best skyline, the country's best beach, trams, futuristic architecutre and lots of beautiful classic buildings. Overall a nice city, visited some years ago!

You are blinded by the ultra conformist established standards. This is so obviously a stylish town, though.

I won't approve anything the Netherlands does, like their tax policies may be questionable...
They've been a bit like the Irish, trying to steal big greedy company headquarters from anyone trying to behave and have some fair social policy, which is messing up the EU and ruining faith in it.

Their contemporary architecture is nonetheless beautiful and most influential worldwide.
That's quite something to this small country.
