The city of Amsterdam has many different faces, which it shows at different times. Known by all to be the cultural capital of Holland and having, with its beautiful canals running through the city centre, earned itself the honorary name of "the Venice of the North", it attracts, and keeps attracting, travellers from all over the world. And with good reason. With more than 700 years of often tumultuous history behind it, Amsterdam has evolved into a melting pot of cultures and sub-cultures, bringing people from different backgrounds together to form a rather unique and distinctly urban environment that has something to offer to everyone.
Amsterdam is the city of Rembrandt. The famous painter lived and worked in the old Jewish neighbourhood of the city, where his house can still be visited. It is his Age - the so-called ·Golden Age· that is the period of economic and cultural thriving that lasted from roughly 1580 to 1670 - that has left us some of the most precious treasures of art as well as architecture. The picturesque buildings that one finds oneself surrounded with in most of the old city centre are an attraction in themselves. Taking a trip along the canals is a must for every lover of architecture, as it offers one the possibility of viewing the city from an incomparably charming angle. But it is not all buildings and paintings in Amsterdam. All around the world the city is known for its inhabitant’s tolerant attitude which is reflected in the day to day live in the city of Amsterdam.
