St. Nicolaaskerk

All that you might have read regarding the liberal nature of Amsterdam is quite correct. I went during the gay parade and the colors, sights, sounds and atmosphere of the city was both enchanting and beautiful to behold.

A decorative boat house

Amsterdam cannot be mentioned without references to its canals and boat houses. This rather large boat house was docked in the area of town called the Jordaan. I must say that I really liked this part of Amsterdam. To me it was one of the more eclectic parts of the city.

A cafe along Prinsenstraat

Not to be confused with a coffee shop, this is a regular cafe along one of the main streets of the Jordaan.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros: Very liberal city with much to offer the tourists
  • Cons: You have to be careful of what you buy from street hawkers (drugs)
  • In a nutshell: All it's tauted to be and more
