The old trade hub of Europe and a world power back in the days. The city is amazing with almost all the buildings dating back to the 17th & 18th century around downtown. The 100 km of canals running through the whole city is very unique to this city. And not only that, there are so many great museums like Van Gogh and Rembrandt to name the biggest. What flocks even more tourists here is the totally legal weed and any sort of marihuana. Chip in a red-light district and legal prostitution too and you get Amsterdam. Downtown streets are constantly full of tourists. And so many yum yum munchies places too. Love this city!
First stop in downtown, Rijksmuseum (National museum). The que was sooooo long. Took about 2 hours before we were in the museum. And inside was too damn crowded to even be able to enjoy all the art. At least the "famous" art, the stuff that was not Rembrandt or Gogh was more quiet. Well, you can judge yourself from the pictures.
Shiny shiny gold, my precioussssszzz
Cool jewellery box
I wonder how practical this cannon was
Van Gogh self-portrait
Awesome loading station, put your phone in the box charging with given cable and lock it. Come back in 30 min and your all set. Nice
This is what I mean about crowds...Didn't even bother going there
A 400 year old library. Was so quiet and cool, here I could imagine sitting sipping some coffee and studying
Now this is the kind of treasure every pirate wanted to find!
Seriously, whatever "art" this is suppose big fail
Canal cruise with lucky front seats
Bikes, loads and loads of bike. The cruise captain said the canals are 3 meters deep. 1 meter water, 1 meter dirt and 1 meter of bikes. I can see how that would be possible :)
Central square with added theme park to celebrate incoming freedom day
Amsterdams smallest pub
The beautiful canals
The skinny bridge...wonder why it's called that?

Choose your tulip, there are plenty
And my favourite room in my favourite museum: Rembrandts treasure chamber! There is stuff from all over the world! If I could choose whatever life I could I would like to be a 17th century world explorer like Marco Polo
This is all just candy, yum
