Originated as a small fishing village, the early settlers of Amsterdam built dikes on both sides of the river to prevent flooding and later on, would build dams over the dikes. Swiftly, the city expanded its business and became the country’s biggest commercial town and port. After the Second World War, urbanization accelerated and suburbs were built at a rapid speed. Buildings were made into monuments, bridges were built, and three of Amsterdam’s bridges were turned into a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2010.From the breath-taking architecture, to the booming nightlife, Amsterdam provides something for everyone to take back.
