Amsterdam is the capital city of the Netherlands, located in the province of North Holland. The city is located near the IJ lake and the river mouth of the Amstel. Amsterdam received city rights in 1342 and became an important trading center in the Golden Age. The canal houses in the center of Amsterdam are still evidence of this glorious time. The ‘Grachtengordel’ (Amsterdam Canal District), the part of the city with the four main canals, became World Heritage in 2010. Because of the many canals in Amsterdam, it has even more bridges than Venice!
