Amsterdam, Holland














Amsterdam is a really expensive city to sleep, so I went to sleep to Utrech, a city close to Amsterdam, because I had an interrail ticket and the transportation was free for me. In Utrech I found a really cheap Hostel where you can sleep for 16euros per night and there are included all food that you can eat.



















The city is known for its historic port, the Rijksmuseum, its red-light district (de Wallen), its liberal coffee shops, and its many canals which have led to Amsterdam being called the "Venice of the North". During the Dutch Golden Age, Amsterdam was one of the most important ports in the world, with innovative developments in trade, and became the leading centre for finance and diamonds.

The city, founded in the late 12th century as a small fishing village, has grown to become the largest city in the Netherlands with a population of 743,104 inhabitants, containing at least 172 nationalities.
