As the crow flies, the distance between the two cities is 32 miles (or 51 kilometres). Trains run four or five times an hour, and the journey will take approximately an hour. A second-class return will cost 22 euro and about 36 euros will get you a first-class ticket. If travelling by car, take the A4 South towards the Hague then turn onto the A13. Rotterdam is the second-largest city in Holland by population of its municipality, with about 600,00 people, with a total of 1.3 million people in the metropolitan area. It was the world’s busiest port for 40 years from the 1960s until the turn of the century, and remains Europe’s largest. In the Netherlands, Rotterdam has the highest percentage of foreigners from non-industrialised nations. Nearly 50 per cent of the population are not native to the Netherlands or have at least one parent born outside the country. Recent figures show that Muslims comprise close to 25 per cent of the city's population. The city is also home to one of the largest Cape Verdean communities in the world, as well as the largest Dutch Antillean community. The atmosphere of Rotterdam, with its can-do spirit, is absolutely distinct from other Dutch cities. The modern look of the city, the bustle and its building spree all add to this impression but, as with most major cities, you might also find that people are sometimes somewhat too straight with you. One may also find that visiting this city in spring or summer time is more enjoyable than in winter time, as the Netherlands can be a rainy place and Rotterdam is a city that especially gains a lot of charm when the sun is shining. Key attractions in the city include the Maritime Museum, a Natural History (Natuurhistorisch) Museum and a bronze statue of the philosopher Erasmus. The city only has seven windmills remaining, De Ster and De Lelie being the only two open to the public. There is also a zoo and some botanical gardens. The local football team are Feyenoord, who play at the Kuip stadium.

The queen lives in the Hague and the government is located there as well.
Amsterdam is the capital. Holland officially refers to two provinces in the west of the Netherlands.
