Welcome to ‘the Venice of the North’!
From its earliest days as a fishing village to its current position as a dynamic hub for business, culture diversity and tourism, Amsterdam has a lot to offer as lovely canal-side city, including the rich history and development of its tolerant society.
As today’s capital of the Netherlands, it already was one of the most important ports in the world during the 17th century known as the Dutch Golden Age. The city continued to grow and expanded its neighbourhoods in the 19th and 20th centuries to become now the most populous city of the country.
Each area of Amsterdam has its own character and delight with a unique variety of markets, shops, restaurants, cafes and museums shaping the city’s fortress.
