More Important Information About Your Travel to Rotterdam Central Station
Rotterdam (, UK also ; Dutch: [ˌrɔtərˈdɑm]) is a city and municipality in the Netherlands.
It is in the province of South Holland, at the mouth of the Nieuwe Maas channel leading into the Rhine–Meuse–Scheldt delta at the North Sea.
Its history goes back to 1270, when a dam was constructed in the Rotte.
In 1340, Rotterdam was granted city rights by the Count of Holland.
The Rotterdam–The Hague metropolitan area, with a population of approximately 2.7 million, is the 13th-largest in the European Union and the most populous in the country.
A major logistic and economic centre, Rotterdam is Europe's largest seaport.
In 2020, it had a population of 651,446 and is home to over 180 nationalities.
Rotterdam is known for its university, riverside setting, lively cultural life, maritime heritage and modern architecture.
The near-complete destruction of the city centre in the World War II Rotterdam Blitz has resulted in a varied architectural landscape, including sky-scrapers designed by architects such as Rem Koolhaas, Piet Blom and Ben van Berkel.The Rhine, Meuse and Scheldt give waterway access into the heart of Western Europe, including the highly industrialized Ruhr.
The extensive distribution system including rail, roads, and waterways have earned Rotterdam the nicknames "Gateway to Europe" and "Gateway to the World"..
Additional Information About London St Pancras International
St Pancras railway station (), also known as London St Pancras and officially since 2007 as St Pancras International, is a central London railway terminus on Euston Road in the London Borough of Camden.
It is the terminus for Eurostar services from London to Belgium, France and the Netherlands.
It provides East Midlands Railway services to Leicester, Corby, Sheffield and Nottingham on the Midland Main Line, Southeastern high-speed trains to Kent via Ebbsfleet International and Ashford International, and Thameslink cross-London services to Bedford, Peterborough, Brighton and Gatwick Airport.
It stands between the British Library, the Regent's Canal and King's Cross railway station, with which it shares a London Underground station, King's Cross St.
Pancras. The station was constructed by the Midland Railway (MR), which had an extensive network across the Midlands and the North of England, but no dedicated line into London.
After rail traffic problems following the 1862 International Exhibition, the MR decided to build a connection from Bedford to London with their own terminus.
The station was designed by William Henry Barlow and constructed with a single-span iron roof.
Following the station's opening on 1 October 1868, the MR constructed the Midland Grand Hotel on the station's façade, which has been widely praised for its architecture and is now a Grade I listed building along with the rest of the station. By the 1960s, St Pancras was surplus to requirements and services were diverted to King's Cross and Euston but there was fierce opposition to its proposed closure and demolition of the station and hotel.
The station was reinvented in the late 20th century as the terminal for the Channel Tunnel Rail Link in an urban regeneration plan across East London.
The complex underwent an £800 million refurbishment which was opened by Queen Elizabeth II in November 2007.
A security-sealed terminal area was constructed for Eurostar services to mainland Europe via High Speed 1 and the Channel Tunnel, with platforms for domestic trains to the north and south-east of England.
The restored station has 15 platforms, a shopping centre, and a coach facility.
St Pancras is owned by HS1 Ltd and managed by Network Rail (High Speed), a subsidiary of Network Rail..
