The Piet Heynsbrug, is an old bridge in the historic area of Delfshaven. Delfshaven is an area in the west part of Rotterdam. The town of Delfshaven grew around the port of the city of Delft. Delft did not have access to a major river, so in 1389 a harbour was created about 10 km (6 mi) south of the city, in order to accommodate its commerce as well as spare paying tolls to the neighbouring and competing city of Rotterdam. This settlement was named Delfshaven (“Port of Delft”). Delfshaven escaped the bombing of Rotterdam in May 1940.
