About Amsterdam

Amsterdam is a beautiful city carved by numerous canals and waterways. The "Venice of the North" is a "Kingdom of Museums" full of European art. It is also vibrant city perfectly combining spicy temptations with ultra-sweet freedom. Amsterdam is famous throughout the world for its openness and culture. No matter how strangely wild and alternative something is, it can probably be found here, art or otherwise. The famous legal red light district can answer all the questions you may have had about the place. Taking a sightseeing tour of Amsterdam by boat is a unique and charming experience. However, strolling through the streets of the city, the narrow buildings and windows tell the story of a thousand years of history.
