Amsterdam is the capital of the Netherlands with remarkable architecture, lovely canals that criss cross the city, great shopping, and very friendly people who nearly all speak English. Amsterdam offers something for every traveller's taste here, whether you prefer culture and history, wild partying, or just the relaxing charm of an old European city.
Amsterdam has over a million inhabitants in the urban area, and is in the Province of North-Holland. Amsterdam is not the seat of government (which is in The Hague), but it is the biggest city and the cultural and creative centre of the Netherlands.
Depending on your viewpoint some people will consider Amsterdam an unwholesome city whereas other people will find their relaxed attitudes refreshing. If you avoid the red light district, Amsterdam is an excellent family destination.
