“Some tourists think Amsterdam is a city of sin, but in truth it is a city of freedom. And in freedom, most people find sin.” John Green.
Country of windmills and dykes, grassy fields and grass heads, tolerance and tradition, Van Gogh and Shocking Blue, the Netherlands concentrate their features in Amsterdam. Amsterdam is small enough to navigate on foot and saturated in culture both past and present. Its reputation as a youthful city, largely derived from its legalized prostitution and cannabis, holds true, yet Amsterdam’s exquisite museums, vibrant markets, and rich history easily leap the age gap and make it the ideal destination for a short, cheerful and relativel cheap break. The downside of this is that things (both hotels, events and travel ) tend to get booked up in advance. Divento has up todate information on what's going on as well as tickets to most events. These days even popular exhibitions need to be booked in advance, so check out what's on and make the necessary bookings before you go.
