Set out to a journey on the canals of lovely Amsterdam and glance at the city’s rich history…

Amsterdam is the pearl of Europe with its rich collection of art galleries, museum and many attractions. The Dam Square, the Museumplein and the beautiful canals of the city are waiting for you!

When visiting Amsterdam, you must firstly see the Dam Square where you will find the National Monument and the Royal Palace. I also recommend you to visit the Gothic New Church and Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum. When you walk to North you will find Red Light District. After that, you need to walk to South to reach Prinsengracht canal. There is a famous historical Protestant Church – Westerkerk – at the bank of the canal. It was believed that Rembrandt was buried there. You must climp up the belfry which has 186 steps, the view from the top is worth to seeing. The Westerkerk is also close to another major attraction of the city – Anne Frank House. The house is a museum that was dedicated to Jewish wartime diarist Anne Frank. It is an important exhibition that shows all forms of persecution and discrimination from that times. Then cross over the canal and reach to Jordaan district’s colorful streets that offer many cafes, restaurants, and art galleries. There is a festival taking place every year in the streets of the district. Over one September weekend each year, Jordaan streets are turning into open-air party venue that attracts many tourist every year. Learning more about the history? You can have a visit to the Museumplein. It is a square that contains the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum, the Stedelijk Museum, and the Diamond Museum. The square is also used for many festivals, celebrations, and demonstrations. Don’t miss to hire a bike and have an enjoyable visit to Vondelpark. Amsterdam is famous its vibrant nightlife. There are two main districts: Leidseplein and Rembradtplein. Leidseplein streets are full of bars, cafes, theaters, and clubs. There are also many bars with English names. In Rembradtplein, there are bars chock-a-block and several large discos.

You can visit Amsterdam all year round. But the weather may be cold to walk around in the winter, so I recommend you to go in spring and summer.  Amsterdam is one of the greatest cities to visit and really worth to seeing. A city that is full of action!
