Amsterdam

Amsterdam - description of the city:

Amsterdam is the country's capital and an incredibly attractive and beautiful city. Here, in addition to sightseeing, you can enjoy the so-called "author" excursions "Alternative Amsterdam" or "Crazy Amsterdam." They are devoted to the hipsters of the city: hippies, punks, sexual minorities and others. During the excursion, theory is consolidated by practical activities: visiting the "coffee shops." The cost of such excursions is about 200 Euros per person.

Climate in Amsterdam:

Amsterdam is not just another European capital, but also one of the most attractive tourist destinations for thousands of people. So it is not surprising that the concept of "low season" does not exist here. However, there are days when is a little less tourists on the streets than usual. Usually it is in the winter time (excluding Christmas!), when the days become shorter (daylight lasts for 8 hours) and the weather is too dank for long walks along the canals. July and August are the hottest months with an average temperature of +23 ° C.

You should remember some dates, when Amsterdam is amazingly beautiful: is a spring and endless field of blooming tulips, and 30 of April - Queen's Day, when the whole city dresses up in royal orange.

Amsterdam is a city of canals, which are crossed by more than 600 bridges. The most interesting are Blauburg and Maher-Bruges ("Skinny Bridge"). From the water you can observe most of the sights of Amsterdam, and hundreds of picturesque bridges.

From there, begin streets and "grachts" (canals) in Amsterdam, including the main street - Damrak. The historical city center is called "Quarter of big channels", the channels surrounding it include the Single ("defensive"), the Herengracht ("Masters channel"), Keizersgracht ("Imperial"), Prinsengracht ("Prince Channel") which divide the city into 90 islands.
