South Holland Cities

Rising above the plain of the plains.



People know Rotterdam for many reasons, such as the tollerant Dutch attitude towards the drug and sex industries, and sexual orientations. Others know it for its experimental architecture. We know it best for its starring role in Jackie Chan's 1998 film "Who Am I?".

Den Haag

Den Haag is called The Hague in English (presumably because they couldn't speak Dutch, and just read it as they saw it - it's pronounced Den Hahch, where ch is like a gentle German ch from 'Bach'). It is the seat of government and home of the monarchy, and yet for legacy reasons it is not the official capital - that honour is bestowed on Amsterdam.
