Maastricht is a city in the southeastern part of the Netherlands, located on the banks of the Maas River. It is the capital of the Limburg province and has a rich history that dates back to Roman times. The city has a population of around 122,000 people and is known for its charming historic architecture, cultural heritage, and lively atmosphere.

One of the most iconic landmarks in Maastricht is the St. Servatius Bridge, a stunning arched stone bridge that spans the Maas River. Other notable attractions include the Basilica of Our Lady, a beautiful Romanesque church with a famous statue of the Virgin Mary, and the 17th-century Fort Sint Pieter, which offers panoramic views of the city.

Maastricht is also famous for its role in European history as the site of the signing of the Maastricht Treaty, which established the European Union in 1992. The city is home to several important European institutions, including the European Institute of Public Administration and the headquarters of the European Journalism Centre.
