Over the course of last Spring and Summer, I visited the city of Nijmegen several times. Its relaxed atmosphere and uniqueness sets it apart from many other Dutch cities, making it a must see for anyone wishing to take the road less travelled.
Built along the banks of the Waal river, Nijmegen is the oldest city in The Netherlands, standing close to the German border. The city has existed in one form or another since the founding of a Roman settlement in 98 BC, its influence and importance in European history being traceable into modernity. The blend of history and contemporary culture make it a great place to explore!
