  • Amsterdam was formerly known as the water dams at the mouth of Amstel, and Amsterdam was an international metropolis from small fishing villages in the estuary, this river, which was originally built in the sea of Amsterdam, has been in the hundreds of centuries of cities, and it is a river that stands on the banks of the river, along with the other canals that are in the city. The famous Slim Bridge on the Amstel River, overlooking the cast, is the stunning sighs of the Amsterdam Canal.

  • You can either walk along the sides of this canal and view the architecture of the buildings or take a canal trip and view from a lower level - but it should be done on a visit to Amsterdam.  more »
