Nijmegen is the oldest city in the Netherlands. Its history goes back to Roman times.

It's a lively city with a pleasant mix of old and new: you will find historic buildings and sites, as well as examples of modern architecture.
The city is situated on the river Waal. Very recently, a spectacular water management project 'Room for the River' was completed, involving a change of the course of the river and the creation of an artificial island.
