About MaastrichtThe city of Maastricht is located in the southernmost Dutch province of Limburg and is a "melting pot" of Dutch, French and German cultures. Although spoken languages of Dutch, French and German are commonplace, some 70 percent of the Dutch also speak English.
Maastricht has played an increasingly important role in Europe in the late 20th Century. The European Council meeting in December 1991, which led to the now famous Maastricht Treaty of the European Union, is one of many indications of the city's commitment to an international role.
The history of Maastricht dates back to 50 BC, when the Romans built a settlement near a ford in the Maas River. Today Maastricht has a population of 120,000, and because of the city's rich heritage, the whole city-center has been declared a "protected area."
