amsterdam tourismAmsterdam has many attractions for visitors. Most famous sight in Amsterdam is the system of canals that spreads over the whole city centre. The French writer J. K. Huysmans once called Amsterdam “a dream, an orgy of houses and water.” It’s true: when compared with other major European cities, this one is uniquely defined by its impressive gabled houses, rather than palaces, estates, and other aristocratic folderol.

There are many interesting attraction in Amsterdam. You can enjoy Museum Square, Royal Palace (Amsterdam), Stopera, Diamond factories, Open-air markets and Zoos.

Amsterdam also well known for its vibrant and diverse nightlife. The two main nightlife areas are the Leidseplein and the Rembrandtplein. You can find many cafes in Amsterdam. They range from large and modern to small and cozy. The typical bruine kroeg (brown cafe) breathe a more old fashioned atmosphere with dimmed lights, candles, and somewhat older clientele. Most cafes have terraces in summertime. A common sight on the Leidseplein during summer is a square full of terraces packed with people drinking beer or wine.
