The port of Rotterdam is the biggest port of Europe. So it's not so strange most drugs end up there too. The last years there's better screening of outsourced personnel, and almost any truck or container coming in gets x-rayed now.

It is a very nice, cosy city with friendly people of many nationalities.

Nice and welcoming city.

Easy to make new friends with people from all around the world (unless you're a racist).

The city is a bit divided, with lower income younger generations in the south and middle and upper class in the north.

Plenty of outdoor markets where the turks and moroccans sell fruit, veggies, meat and baked goods for half the price of supermarkets.

This city is a dive, very dangerous because of the large amounts of immigrants from Northern Africa (Morocco), Africa, Turkey and Arabic countries.
Anyone who lives in a city that has a large Moroccan population will know exactly what that means.

I have been living in south rotterdam for a few years, recently the younger generation (12-16) have been gathering in huge numbers. in my area people are attacked daily from these youths verbally and physically. today i was attacked i had been spat at and stones been thrown, i informed the police but they will do nothing 1!! even though i have been assaulted.

something needs to be done as one day an adult will defend him self and end up in prison for hitting a minor
