Utrecht in Febuary

Again, I took some pics of the (medieval) city centre of Utrecht.

Enjoy these!

That tower to the left is the "Dom" tower, the tallest one in the city.

Lots of streetlife here. On thursday night, lots of students go to bars, or go clubbing. I went clubbing ;)

I like that first one too; a great collection of buildings.

What are all of the doors and windows in the wall along the river for?

thanks!

the doors and windows belong to restaurants, bars etc., which are located in 'the wall along the river'.

Does much of the city look like this or is this like the historical center of town?

This is just the historical center. The rest of the city is (in my opinion) ugly and depressing. It's a good thing the city has a nice historical center, because that compensates the uglyness of the rest of the city.

Very nice pictures. Too bad the rest of the city isn't up to par with the historical center.

Yeah that's too bad. Thanks for sharing the nice historical center of town with us though. :D

You're welcome. If I have the opportunity this week, I'll take some more pics so that you can see what I mean.

Some more pics I took this morning. This is one of the very first days of snow we've had this winter. And it's March already!

I wanted to take some photographs of the uglier parts of the city, but the weather got worse rapidly. So I took this pics of the area around the Central Station, which is considered an ugly area by many. Sorry for the bad quality of this pic.

PS, nevermind the dates on those pics! All were taken on March 1st.

Quite a snowstorm going on there. I didn't get a great look but the other areas didn't seem too bad to me. They're obviously not as nice as along the waterfront. Thanks for the pics. :D

Actually, it's pretty cold here indeed. But tons of snow has fallen overnight, which really is strange because it's the first time this winter we're seeing this much snow and it's March?!

Just remember.. if March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb.

Great pictures by the way. Utrecht looks beautiful even if it was kind of dull out.

The pictures of the snow create a "heavenly scene." I like it! Hell, I like the Netherlands in general!
