Open up

The theme of the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 is ‘Open Up’. That fits perfectly with the tolerant and open Netherlands and, of course, with Rotterdam. The city is diverse with more than 170 nationalities and open-minded: Rotterdam is third on the list of most LGBTQI-friendly cities in the world.

Open Up fits perfectly with our city and with the Rotterdam mentality

Euro Village
