Amsterdam was granted city rights in early 14th century and rapidly became a center of Netherlands' economical and cultural life. Nowadays, Amsterdam is one of the greatest small cities in the world.

Amsterdam has a lot of museums. Most of them are located at the Museumplein (Museum Square). This square is the largest of Amsterdam and you can find there the Rijksmuseum, the Van Goghmuseum en the Stedelijk museum. All these museums contains a large and important collection of classical Dutch art (Rembrandt, Vermeer, Frans Hal, Piet Mondriaan, Karel Appel, Vincent van Gogh). Also famous in Amsterdam is the Anne Frank House. Here you can see and experience how Anne Frank, a Jewish wartime diarist, has lived during the second World War.

Amsterdam is undoubtedly a city of tolerance and diversity. The best known for liberal attitude to drugs and prostitution, it has much more other things to distinguish itself from the others. Amsterdam is widely known for its red light district 'De Wallen', also know as the 'Rosse buurt'. As you stumble upon it the first time, you find yourself almost immediately in a surreal world, one of shadows and small, seedy pathways. The district is a network of alleys where you can find hundreds of female prostitutes who offer the services from behind a red window. In this area there are also a lot of sex shops, sex theatres, sex museums and coffee shop. In the coffee shop you can get various cannabis products.

So called Venice of the North captures the imagination and admiration of everyone who come here. Not without reason Amsterdam is famous as the best place to take a break from the routine activities. Amsterdam is rich with natural and architectural beauty. With countless canals running through the city center, there's a good view to be found from any of the city's many bridges. Charming brick buildings line cobble-stone roads and at night, lampposts bath the city in a soft, orange light.
