The Netherlands

I'm not sure is this a sunset or a sunrise, but the colours are absolutely stunning! Maastricht is situated on the both banks of Meuse river, and its location is to thank for the name the city has now - the name Maastricht is derived from Latin Trajectum ad Mosam (or Mosae Trajectum), meaning "crossing at the Meuse". Maastricht is one of the oldest towns of Europe and has a very rich history and many interesting things to visit if you're a tourist, it is especially known for its picturesque squares and romantic streets. It has also become known as the birthplace of the European UnionEuropean citizenship, and the single European currency, the euro, because of the Maastircht Treaty.
