[Amsterdam on the Canal]
Amsterdam Canal Belt, connecting more than 100 islands, with more than 1,000 bridges, river networks interlaced, rivers and rivers, adding a unique charm to the city.
Many canal houseboats docked on the canal. These houseboats are fixed vessels and are home to people. In the Netherlands, where the land is in the gold, the houseboat has become a fashion. There are 2,000 such houses in Amsterdam. Many houses have a history of 100 years or more. Many artists and musicians live in the houseboats to seek inspiration.
The houses on both sides of the canal were built in the middle of the 17th century. These centuries-old houses have witnessed the most glorious period in the Netherlands
Whether it is day or night, the canals of Amsterdam are always packed with Cruise ships and tourists from all over the world. In order to avoid the crowds and feel the original taste of the Amsterdam Canal, we climbed up early in the morning, taking the sun in the morning, starting from home, passing through the Jordanian district of the Old Town, and finally arriving at the Dam Palace in the seat of the Royal Palace in Amsterdam.
Amsterdam is a city surrounded by a canal, and one of the modes of travel that is worth traveling is to take a canal cruise. You can use the Amsterdam Card for free rides. Otherwise you need to buy a ticket separately, like an adult 16 euros. Sitting on the blue boat this shipping company. There will be headphones on the boat, and the headphones will be voiced in more than 20 languages. The whole journey takes about 1 hour and you can take photos all the way.
The cruise ship sails on the canal, the colored houses lined up on both sides of the canal, the weather is good, the green trees and the blue sky of the riverside trees are matched, it is really very commentary. And the weather is good, the sun is shining in the cabin, I feel very comfortable. You can also take photos all the way, and use the wide angle to shoot the scenery. If you need to shoot portraits, try to shoot as far as possible. A wide-angle lens can definitely take good pictures.
After arriving in Amsterdam, the first stop came to the canal belt in the city centre. The
Amsterdam Canal Belt has a history of 400 years and has developed into a 75-kilometer canal network of more than 160 canals and 1,281 bridges. It is a well-deserved "water city".
Amsterdam is centered on the central railway station and is spread over the curved Seagul, Gentleman Canal, Emperor Canal, Princes Canal and the outermost Sear Canal. Its main attractions are concentrated around 1.5 km. Radius in the canal.
Small cruises, boat cruises are the best way to experience the charm of Amsterdam's waters. Through the glass roof and glass windows, you can enjoy the 17th century gabled buildings on both sides of the river. They are colorful and different in shape. And a sense of history.
The Netherlands is a bicycle kingdom, so bicycles can be seen everywhere. When mentioning a country known as the "king kingdom", people first think of China and the Netherlands. China has a certain number of bicycles, and it deserves to rank first in the world. In terms of the number of bicycles per person and the proportion of bicycles traveled, the Netherlands far exceeds China.
Strolling on the streets of Amsterdam, turning around, the rain is gradually stopped. There is a glass boat quietly parked on the shore waiting for us. When you enter the houseboat, you must find a glass left to open the boat, so you can easily photograph it. The surrounding buildings and beautiful scenery
boat slowly traveled from the wide waters to the complex interlaced canal, the bridge criss-cross, the two sides are 17th century mountain-type strong European architecture, the building will be the same Interested in type, the characteristics are obvious, the house is very tall, slender, because the government collects taxes according to the size of each door, all the doors are slender, most of the furniture can not enter from the door, so There will be hooks on the roof, you can hang up the furniture and go in through the window. Which country is the same? There are policies and countermeasures.
Amsterdam prices are not low. For the relatively difficult residents, you can get from the government. I bought a water house to live in, about 8W-10W euros, so the canal is covered with all kinds of water houses. Each decoration is very characteristic, especially warm, that is, the tide must be inevitable.
The only regret is that the sky is not clear, if the Dutch architecture under the blue sky and white clouds is really very eye-catching, it doesn't matter, come back next time.
The total length of the canals in Amsterdam is more than a hundred kilometers, with numerous islands and bridges, making the city known as the “Venice of the North”. There are thousands of "boat houses" on the river, although they are houseboats but fully equipped. You can truly appreciate the unique charm of the water city by visiting Amsterdam by glass boat. Cruises pass through the famous river course, which is lined with typical Dutch traditional houses.
