  • A calm quiet area of Amsterdam, where the main museums of the city and where all the tourists make selfi memory about going near the giant iron letters. Mjuseumplejn Square is the Centre of the Museum Quarter: around her are three of the most important museums of Amsterdam — Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and Stedelijk Museum, as well as the diamond Museum. For me this is the main area of Amsterdam after the Centre. The famous red and white Stella Iamsterdam appeared at Museum square in 2004 year. Initiator made City Hall, concerned about the questionable image of Amsterdam in the eyes of tourists. Bright, colorful slogan, physically embodied on the sunny square, surrounded by the three major museums in the city, had broadcast a simple message: Amsterdam is not only brothels, sex theatres and coffeeshops. Amsterdam is a beautiful city with unique architecture, rich culture, unusual traditions and a fantastic history. A mandatory place to visit in Amsterdam.
