DESCRIPTION

The bustling city center of Amsterdam is easily negotiable by foot or bicycle, with 160 canals, 1,281 bridges and 90 islands all reclaimed from the sea. Founded on Calvinistic principles, today the entrepreneurial spirit of the Dutch culture lives on with a lively arts scene and cafes.
