Top Amsterdam Blogs: cycling on the canals


God made the Earth, but the Dutch made the Netherlands – this saying explains the practical capability of the Dutch and their sense of cultural pride. We can say the same about Amsterdam and the Amsterdammer, like New York and the New Yorkers.

Each of the 165 canals that are in Amsterdam was made by the Dutch. In such a culturally and socially rich continent as Europe, there’s no other city where people from all over the world are welcome, where every culture can have a voice and every religion can find its space. This is why Amsterdam attracts so many people from every corner of the Earth, not only as tourists, but also as potential residents and contributors to this unique community.

That’s why, following Paris and Rome, I decided to make a list of the top blogs dedicated to Amsterdam, for all the tourists willing to visit this unbelievable city.

Stuff Dutch People Like – this is one of my favorites: Stuff Dutch People Like is a study of all things orange.
