The city of Amsterdam has many different faces, which it shows at different times. Known by all to be the cultural capitol 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 inhabitants tolerant attitude toward soft drugs and prostitution. So visiting a "coffee shop" is an option, just as having a look around the infamous red light district is an option. On a more serious note, one of the most famous and crowd-drawing spots in Amsterdam is the house of Anne Frank. It is this house, behind a church, where the Jewish girl hid and wrote her diaries. The place where she lived and wrote is visited by many each year and leaves an unforgettable impression on most. Then there is the nightlife, without which Amsterdam would not be what it is: the pubs in the alleys, the clubs on the squares, the Concertgebouw with its famous acoustics, comedy clubs where the Dutch let Americans make fun of them, restaurants with delicacies from every corner of the world - it is all present, and all of it easily reachable with an excellent public transportation system. During the day - all week through, including on Sundays - Amsterdam offers its visitors ample opportunity for shopping. It is not widely known, but certainly true that, in this area, Amsterdam competes with cities like London, Paris and Milan, one of the differences being that Amsterdam has more to offer to those with less to spend.
But at you can also find London hotels, Barcelona hotels and hotels in Prague or Rome.
