The city borders the Ijsselmeer, an inland sea that offers numerous recreational opportunities. The city is crisscrossed by countless canals, so you can take a city tour by boat.

Sights in Amsterdam

Amsterdam’s major sights include the Rijksmuseum. This is the national museum of the Netherlands, which also houses Rembrandt’s famous painting “The Night Watch”.

In the Van Gogh Museum, the largest collection of works by the famous Dutch painter awaits those interested in art. The royal palace op de Dam is located on a square in the center of the city. It dates back to the 17th century and was built in the Dutch classicist style.

One of the most impressive Gothic buildings in the centre is the 19th-century Catholic Sint Nicolaaskerk. The residential areas in the Amsterdam School style also attract many architecture enthusiasts. Detailed information about this modern style can be found at the Museum Het Schip.
