Show photos AND videos of your city and tell us a few things you considered important for the place you live.

Purpose of its creation(topic) is to bring all players stratego closer and see who live our friends. I believed to be a pleasant note filled with images and beautiful videos from around the world.

( I've fought with the colors of Veria for 3 years in this stadio (14-16) 1987-1989).

 

This is my city.
Her name Veria.
Located 70 km from Thessaloniki and 550 from Athens.Ηas about 70.000 residents.
It is beautiful and welcoming city (with beautiful women ;) ).
13 kilometers from the town is the archaeological site of Vergina where the grave of Phillip II King of Macedon and father of Alexander the Great.

One topic is to small for all the great items in Rotterdam.

 

Let's start with some history:

The Willemsbrug. During the war an important bridge, because one of the entrances to the city. 

Dutch marines kept this bridge untill Rotterdam was bombed by the Germans, and Holland capitulated.

willemsbrugrotterdam1_thumb.jpg?w=950&h=

 

The Feyenoordstadium (Kuip), with sleeping giant Feyenoord, recently awoke of a long, long sleep.

Many European finals have been played here, Feyenoord won the Uefa Cupfinal in 2002.

Here an impression of the atmosphere:

The river  'Maas' is very important because of our harbour. Many, many years the largest harbour of the world, before 'the East' (Hong Kong etc) took over this title.

 

sk_0031k.jpg

 

 

We have our own 'White house, in his days the highest buidling of Europe, can you imagine that?

 

sk_0017k.jpg

 

and the Erasmusbridge.

 

sk_0088k.jpg

 

I can go on for quite a while, but that would be to much for you for this time  :D

PS: Almost forgotten, here live people, I've been there once.

I'm from Canton Township Michigan population near 100,000.  It lies about a 1/2 hour west of Detroit and no we aren't bankrupt and run down.  We have some beautiful homes, nice stores, and parks.

I'm so jealous about all those great cities..

But I live in Waddinxveen.(the Netherlands) It is.. ah.. not so big village. Most of Waddinxveen is countryside. With in the middle some

houses.

 

Here a map:

Houses and countryside

We are famous of our lift bridge:

And our people! :D no.  Here some of them:

Some art:

It's not so bad living in this village. I can go to Rotterdam or The Hague if I wanted to see some stuff and do some things :)

@ Strobe: very nice, but one question about the peoplepicture:
Are you the grandpa? Or the man in the upper leftcorner?

@ Dekaeneas: Nice topic you started! I am very curious where SATAN lives........
Nortrom also comes from Rotterdam I believe.

Maybe Losermaker can also upload some pictures of Australia! Thinking of Australia I see kangaroos and wild dogs.....and sharks.....
Surprise us Losermaker!
Players from Japan, Belgium, Germany and .... and ......also are invited to share the beauty of their hometowns or homelands!

Yo, my place ain't tiny, bitty...

Talking about hometowns, well.....mine is pretty

cuz' I live in Antwerp, worldwide known as the diamond city! B)

 

I live in Flanders so in Belgium that's the northern part.

The south is Wallonia, it suks so that's where the boredom starts! :D

Antwerp's got about a half million peeps, only Brussels got more in charge

and the most chauvinistic people live in my city and consider Antwerp as the glory star! :D

 

We have an expression here : "Antwerp rules and all the rest is parking place!"

Once you visited this pearl, it really makes your heart embrace!

We've got it all,...we've got decent suburbs but also with the crime, we've got the hardest rates

cuz' the cokebizz worldwide is centralized in Europe's second biggest harbour mates!

That's really a dark disgrace but yet we've got the nicest clubs and the coolest bars in place

where you can get cheaply drunk and bounce on the rhythm of the Harlem Shake! :D

We've got the biggest traffic jams of the world so driving your car's a waste

and I don't know if it's smart to say,...

but yet for me, Antwerp is still the city where my heart will stay!

You can call it arrogant but it's marked this way,...

 

Antwerp till I die, biblical,...like it was the city of Noah's Ark today! :D
