Yeah cool photos.

The Hague always reminds me of Portland. There are differences of course and the Hague is much bigger, but of all the European cities I see in pictures onthese sites the Hague comes the closest to Portland...and Seattle as well I guess...in my eyes.

Thanks everyone for your comments!

Inkdaub, according to Google Earth, Portland has got 529.121 inhabitants. The Hague has got 495.000 inhabitants according to Dutch Statistics. I'm not sure how big Portland's metro area is, but there are 990.000 people in the metro area of The Hague.

I think that, because of the modern look of The Hague, it reminds you of Portland. Most European cities retain their centuries-old look, making them completely different from anything American. Both Portland and The Hague have trams (streetcars?) aswell. I haven't visited Portland myself, but I have visited Seattle. It was quite different from The Hague. One of the few similarities are that both cities are coastal cities, and that both cities have a moderate sea climate.

Well then Portland is bigger by a decent margin. I think the modern look is exactly what it is, you're right. I just know that I think of Portland every time I see pics of The Hague. I bet if I visited the Hague I would see the distinctions more clearly.
