Amsterdam is called "the Venice of North" not by accident. This is because of its famous canals, whose building began in the 17th century, during the Dutch Golden Age. Today there are more than 100 km of canals crossing the city and about 1,500 bridges had been built. On the shores of the main channels are built 1,550 wonderful monumental architectures, which are emblematic for the city.
