The Second Pictures of the Netherlands Page

On the first Pictures of the Netherlands page, you could view pictures of Amsterdam and Rotterdam City. (Note: if you've entered this page without coming through the first page, it is recommended that you take a look at that first Pictures Page before you continue with this page.)

In this part of the site you will first of all find some pictures of Rotterdam's famous port. Then, you can also take a look at what is the more 'traditional' Netherlands, namely some pictures of Friesland (Friesland is a province in the north of the Netherlands). After that, some pictures of the Dutch Railways (Nederlandse Spoorwegen or NS) await; you will see some of the Railways' trains driving through typically Dutch landscapes.

To finish up, some pictures of the cities of Arnhem and Nijmegen will be shown. Arnhem is one of the largest cities in the east of the Netherlands and has about 150,000 inhabitants. It's also the capital of the province of Gelderland. Nijmegen's history dates back to the days of the Roman Empire, when this city was a small military outpost on the Northern edge of this vast empire. The purpose? To keep the wild Germanic tribes from raiding the Romans.
