Amsterdam
From its canals to its world-famous museums and historical centres, Amsterdam is one of the most beautiful European cities. There is nothing quite like this small capital and its deep cultural heritage. Not only is Amsterdam colourful, serene, and romantic, it is also exciting and sophisticated.

Amsterdam is a cultural, historical, and architectural marvel. The city is laid out in concentric rings of canals around the old centre, crosscut by a network of access roads and alley-like connecting streets. Most of the museums are clustered at the edge of the canal district and are among the best in Europe. The major museums are the Rijksmuseum, the Stedelijk Museum, the Rembrandt House Museum, and the Van Gogh Museum. De Wallen is the largest and best-known red-light district in Amsterdam, and a major tourist attraction. It is a network of alleys containing several hundred tiny one-room apartments rented by female prostitutes and some ladyboys who offer their services from behind a window or glass door, typically illuminated with red lights.

Amsterdam enjoys a moderate temperate climate, with the weather being strongly influenced by the North Sea to the west and its prevailing north-western winds and gales. Winter temperatures are mild while summers are warm but rarely hot. During the summer, the city comes together in Vondelpark, where locals and tourists alike relax in the balmy weather. Amsterdam statistically might be one of Europe’s wettest capitals, but as soon as the sun is allowed to shine, its inhabitants spill out onto the streets, to sit in the numerous pavement cafés, take a cruise on a canal or even partake in that most ubiquitous of Amsterdam pastimes – ride their bicycles (the city has more than double the number of bikes it has people).
