The romanticism of wind mills, canals and vast fields of tulips
A great many museums, beautiful architecture, historical monuments, canals (grachten) through the whole cCity, local people on bicycles, diamond cutting works, endless offers from restaurants and bars, all of this can be found in the capital of the Netherlands.
If you want to fit into this city, a bicycle is a must. To local people, cycling is a lifestyle. The omnipresent lowlands and cycling trails actually prompt you to use nothing other than a bicycle. The beauty of Amsterdam can be also explored from a boat, which you can take to travel not only to the city centre, but also to nearby windmills.
Museums, night clubs and coffee shops
The typical Amsterdam also means night walks in the famous Red-Light District or “coffee shops” – cafés where you can try or buy a small quantity of marijuana in various forms. The City offers dozens of museums, of which the Rijksmuseum with its Night Watch by Rembrandt, the Van Gogh Museum and the Anne Frank House are definitely worth mentioning.
A visit to Amsterdam would not be complete without visiting a flower market or a cheese factory. The Netherlands produces two kinds of cheese in particular – Gouda and Edam. The Dutch love cheese and are leaders in its production.
After your city tour, you can do some shopping, for instance, in one of the largest European markets, the Albert Cuypmarket or visit the parks, where picnics and family parties take place.
