Amsterdam’s intricate canal system adds beauty and mystery to the city. Anything goes when it comes to fashion, music, and personal eccentricities. Amsterdam is considered one of the world’s most tolerant cities. Despite the way the city embraces new fads and experimental art, it still embodies the classic beauty and sophistication of other old European cities. The way towering cathedrals and manicured parks coexist with neon rave clubs and red-light districts is a phenomenon that can only happen in Amsterdam.
