Amsterdam
Amsterdam
Amsterdam is a beautiful city carved by numerous canals and waterways. The "Venice of the North" is a "Kingdom of Museums" full of European art. It is also vibrant city perfectly combining spicy temptations with ultra-sweet freedom. Amsterdam is famous throughout the world for its openness and culture. No matter how strangely wild and alternative something is, it can probably be found here, art or otherwise. The famous legal red light district can answer all the questions you may have had about the place. Taking a sightseeing tour of Amsterdam by boat is a unique and charming experience. However, strolling through the streets of the city, the narrow buildings and windows tell the story of a thousand years of history.

The total length of the canals in Amsterdam is more than a hundred kilometers, with numerous islands and bridges, making the city known as the “Venice of the North”. There are thousands of "boat houses" on the river, although they are houseboats but fully equipped. You can truly appreciate the unique charm of the water city by visiting Amsterdam by glass boat. Cruises pass through the famous river course, which is lined with typical Dutch traditional houses.

Amsterdam
Amsterdam is laid out in a semicircle. With its enormous Canal Belt, which is unique in the world, the city is also called “Venice of the North". The trip to Amsterdam is hardly complete without a canal tour. The three most important canals of the Canal Belt are the Herengracht, the Keizersgracht and the Prinsengracht, which surround downtown Amsterdam and frame the central railway station.
