Amsterdam, the capital of Netherlands, is an old and very romantic European city, which captivates the traveler with its old town in the form of semicircle with five canals, great architecture, inspiring choice of art galleries and museums and lovely sites for walking, shopping and relaxation.
Over the Amstel River that runs across the city could be counted approximately four hundred bridges and ninety islands.
With its unique combination of old-world charm and cosmopolitan culture, friendly atmosphere and tolerant attitude of the locals, Amsterdam is one of the most popular European cities for international visitors.
The idyllic combination of historical sites, cultural venues and great entertainment spots, turn Amsterdam into a lively city and contemporary scene, and thus into a tempting tourist destination.
Perfect to be explored on foot, Amsterdam has a superb choice of landmarks. Besides the accommodation options in the old town with its small streets and canals, serviced rental apartments are to be found in the city center near the Oude Kerk, the windmills the De Otter and the Molen van Sloten, the Van Gogh Museum and the Diamond Museum. Nice Amsterdam hotels are also set near the Artis Zoo with the Aquarium and the Planetarium, and next to the Zandvoort beach area. The holiday apartments in Amsterdam are generally located in the old town and the areas of Damark and Rokin, where the Amstel River flows.
These vacation accommodation spots are of different types and capacity to welcome one to several guests. Some of the equipped rental units are more suitable for business travellers as they are set near the airport and the business district, while others are more central and oriented towards the families with kids and other leisure-time holiday-makers. Fully equipped to provide maximum comfort and relaxation, the Amsterdam apartments for rent have reasonable prices as well.
Al party starts at midnight, dress warmly, especially good shoes, if you want to walk that night. Beware, there are a lot of people, especially on Dam Square, rather prefer the Jordaan neighborhood and such as De Pijp for the wonderful and unforgettable experience ride.
