Amsterdam is one of the greatest small cities in the world.
Likely government category: Amber
From Amsterdam canals to world-famous Amsterdam museums and historical Amsterdam sights it is one of the most romantic and beautiful cities in Europe. Canal cruises are a popular way to see the city from the perspective of its canals.
Amsterdam is also a city of tolerance and diversity. It has all the advantages of a big city: rich culture, lively Amsterdam nightlife, international restaurants, good transport - but is quiet, and largely thanks to its extensive canals, has a little road traffic. In this city, your destination is never far away, but get a bike for an authentic local experience.
And if you are staying for longer, consider a day trip from Amsterdam to see also the surrounding towns and villages. They are full of attractions. If planning to settle in Amsterdam for some time, definitely try a Dutch language course to not be an outsider.
