Maastricht is one of the oldest places in the Netherlands. It started with the Romans that spread out more to the south in the Netherlands at the beginning of the era. For years Maastricht has been under the influence of the Romans.
In the 19th century Maastricht was emerging as an industrial city, mostly in ceramics.
One thing why Maastricht is quite famous is because of the Federation of Maastricht. It got signed there in February 1992 and was the foundation of the European Union.
These antique cannons are placed in the park. A little mistake is that are placed in front of the rampart….
