Alexandra (29) and her partner, originally from Slovakia, both have a huge passion for food, exploring new flavors and home made dishes. Since we’ve moved from Dublin to Rotterdam a couple of months ago, we’ve met a few interesting people and discovered some great places, pubs and restaurants which we will share with our friends and family who are coming to visit us. We love the variation in flavors of food Rotterdam has to offer. We love how vibrant this city is. There is constantly something happening such as great festivals and gigs.

We do still struggle to call it our home, but Rotterdam did show us how different cultures can live together and respect each other. Various nationalities and religions coexist in a way I have never seen before. I respect the fact that the people of Rotterdam accept everyone.

I would recommend visitors of Rotterdam to visit the Markthal. Explore all the different restaurants, market stands and of course the architecture. You could also rent a bike and explore the city the Dutch way. Visit one of the many pubs and try the many varieties of beers. And last but not least take a watertaxi, which will I think is a must! It gives you a different view on Rotterdam.
