Maastricht

26 photos from Maastricht
(Limburg, Netherlands)

2014-06-07

Maastricht is a city in the Southeast of the Netherlands. It is the capital city in the province of Limburg. Maastricht is located on both sides of the Meuse river, at the point where the Jeker River joins it. In history Maastricht developed from a Belgic settlement, that in the Gallic Wars was conquered by the Romans and thus became a Roman settlement, to a religious centre, a garrison city and an early industrial city. Nowadays, it is known as a city of especially culture and education. Maastricht`s rich history shows from the fact that in this town no less than 1677 national heritage sites (Rijksmonumenten) are located, which is the second highest amount in a Dutch town, after Amsterdam. Furthermore, it has become known, by way of the Maastricht Treaty, as the birthplace of the European Union, European citizenship, and the single European currency, the euro. The town is popular with tourists for shopping and recreation, and has a large growing international student population. Tim and Miaomiao visited the city briefly on their way to Luxembourg in June 2014.
