The Dutch capital Amsterdam is famous for its unique canals. The 17th century canals with the main canals (Singel, Herengracht, Keizersgracht and Prinsengracht) and a piece surrounding area on 1 August 2010 included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

From the early days of the city have natural waterways and dug an important role in water management, transport and defense against enemy armies. In the last quarter of the 19th century, several canals were filled, for cleanliness and for more road space to offer.

The canals still have an important function in the shipping, especially for tourism purposes, such as the canal boats.
