Amsterdam, capital of the Netherlands. An architectural jewel. Europe´s largest intact historical city centre with magnificent 17th and 18th century merchants houses lining its famous canals. Romantic old wooden bridges. Narrow streets crowded with delightful little shops, cafés, flower sellers and herring stalls. A colourful city with a history of tolerance and humour. The city that boasts a wealth of museums, concert venues and avant-garde theatre and dance. So much to see and do in such a compact size city!
