De mi último viaje a Utrecht quiero rescatar unas cuantas fotografías que me gustaron en el momento de tomarlas. Esta es una de ellas. Es la entrada a la universidad, una entrada bellísima por cierto.

El día se iba (otra vez se nota como el sol parece querer desaparecer por los edificios complicándome la correcta exposición) y tras fotografiar a la "cabeza de vaca" y al "escarabajo" llegué a este magnífico punto...

Siento no estar estos últimos días tan "activo" pero el trabajo me tiene loco... parece que la semana que viene estaré un poco más tranquilo... quiero terminar de subiros algunas fotos pendientes de este viaje... un abrazo a todos y muchas gracias por los comentarios de estos días....

Esta sería la información que he encontrado (en inglés) sobre Utrecht y su universidad...

Utrecht is a really amazing city, really surprising one.

Utrecht is a bustling city where cultural events and festivals are held weekly. Culture lovers can get their fill at the municipal theatre, Vredenburg Music Centre and at the numerous museums

Utrecht is the fourth largest city in the Netherlands. The city has a population of almost 300,000. Utrecht is centrally located, making it a great place to live and an ideal location for business and industry.

Utrecht boasts a rich history that goes back to Roman times. The city gets its unique charm from the old city centre and its canals and canalside cellars, old churches and of course the Dom cathedral.

Utrecht is a knowledge centre. The University of Utrecht is the largest in the Netherlands. There are 65,000 students in higher education in Utrecht, giving the city a relatively young population composition and the most highly educated work force in the country. In the 2008 Shanghai Academic Ranking of the world’s leading universities, Utrecht University rated as 9th best university in Europe. The CHE-ranking rates Utrecht University's Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology research programmes among the best in Europe.

Utrecht is creative. Utrecht is proud to bear the title of the most creative city in the Netherlands. There are more than 10,000 jobs in the creative sector.

Utrecht is in motion. The immediate area around Utrecht Central Station is undergoing extensive renovations. Utrecht will create a larger, livelier city centre with links to the surrounding districts. Utrecht is also building
the largest new development in the Netherlands: Leidsche Rijn.

Nobel Prize Winners
Last but not least, Utrecht University is linked to the names of many prominent academics among whom Buys Ballot, Donders, Rudolf Magnus, Van Unnik and Freudenthal. The list also includes Nobel Prize Winners such as Gerard 't Hooft from the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy.

Thank you all....
