About Amsterdam

As the capital of the Netherlands, Amsterdam is one of the greatest small cities in the world. Its name derives from Amstelredamme, from the city's origin as a dam of the river Amstel. It is the country's largest city, with a population of more than 820,000, and the most visited, with over 3,5 million foreign visitors a year.
  

Amsterdam is known for its artistic heritage, elaborate canal system and narrow houses with gabled facades, all legacies of the city’s 17th-century Golden Age. Its Museum District houses the Van Gogh Museum, works by Rembrandt and Vermeer at the Rijksmuseum, and modern art at the Stedelijk. Cycling is key to the city’s character, and there are numerous bike paths. Amsterdam is a city of diversity, rich culture, international restaurants, and good transport.
