You're going to love your Amsterdam holiday
With rows of narrow, crooked houses lining cobblestone avenues and winding canals, an Amsterdam holiday is sure to steal your heart with its unique character and laidback charm. Yet the enchanting scenery is only one of many reasons to visit Amsterdam. The colourful Dutch capital manages to parade both traditional village charm and modern metropolis living at the same time. Travelling to Amsterdam means marvelling at medieval architecture, the works of Rembrandt and Van Gogh, and centuries-old monuments, as well as contemporary art, cutting-edge fashion and design, bustling markets, and beautiful botanical gardens. Not to mention this is a city full of flavours. No trip to Europe is complete without a visit to the quirky capital of the Netherlands.
