Amsterdam. It can be cited as one of the most established cities in Europe with its 17th century buildings and various historical monuments. And the interesting thing about this city is that historic buildings can still be used as houses or businesses. It’s a really rare situation.
Perhaps you can think of or ask how the name Amsterdam was found or where it comes from? We can’t give a definitive answer to that, but if we say this, we give a clue. This city was originally a simple fishing town that was founded in the 12th century next to the Amstel River(I think the city derives its name from the river). Today, however, this city has the distinction of being the largest and most culturally, economically and artistically developed city in the Netherlands in terms of population.
There are 4 metro lines, trams and other public transport in this city, where there are many museums and historical monuments. So it’s easy to travel! There are 350 hotels in this city which is developed in terms of Tourism. In the data of the past years, the number of tourists coming here annually exceeded 4 million. Who knows how many millions now? Amsterdam is also the 5th most visited city in the world.
