The one thing you will find out about the Netherlands is that the country is filled with entertainment, food, history and some amazing culture. The shopping is said to be the best in Europe. However, the restaurants are amazing.
The cuisine is delightful and you will find a different taste in every restaurant you visit. Since there seems to be more water than land, you will find many bridges throughout Amsterdam. Canals are famous in the area and you will find that Amsterdam is actually ninety islands because of the canals. The islands are linked together with the bridges. It is an amazing place to see.
One great place to visit is Vondelpark. This is a unique park with ponds, trees and meadows. It is the most relaxing place in Amsterdam. You can walk, roller blade or even jog around the park. The meadows and the ponds are fascinating to sit and glaze at when you are there. The green meadows just seem to captivate all your thoughts. The canals are another fascinating sight to glaze at when you are in the city, and of course the city is famous for its diamond jewellery. The Singel, Keizersgracht, Herengracht and the Prinsengracht are the four popular canals to see.
If you are looking for some live entertainment, the Artis Zoo is a place you will see all the entertainment you need. The inhabitants seem to know what visitors like to see and can put on a comical show. You will see over eight thousand animals at the zoo as well as the Aquarium, Planetarium, Geological Museum and the Zoological Museum. You can easily spend two days at the zoo and never see the same thing twice. It is like a magic kingdom without the Disney trademark. Everyone young and old enjoys a visit to the zoo.
Two other attractions in Amsterdam are the Anne Frank Huis and the Vincent van Gogh Museum. The two are spectacular and can be enjoyed by everyone. The Japanese prints in the van Gogh museum are beautiful to see. They have many different exhibits that are not seen outside of the museum. You do not want to forget to see the Rijksmuseum where the artworks of the Dutch date back to the early eighteen hundreds. You are going to have so many things to see and do in Amsterdam, that you might even want to return someday to see the sights you may have missed.
