World / Europe / Netherlands / Amsterdam, Holland, 2009

Amsterdam, Holland, 2009

      Amsterdam is one of the most well-known cities in the world, rich in historical events and intensive culture life. Particular here, for instance, the Hermitage, a famous Russian museum, founded its filial. But in spite of all the cultural and educational efforts, we associate Amsterdam not only with the museums and tulips.

      Amsterdam owes the dam its foundation in XIII century which protected the place from the inundations. The city built "with scale" looks like a toy from the bird-eye flight, the toy made of meccano: everything is accurate, clean and cozy here. But this tranquility is ostentatious: the reality is Amsterdam sucked in different kind of sins which, by the way, managed to live in harmony with its decent townspeople.

      It's forbidden to smoke indoors in order to save the Netherlanders' health. That is why people smoke outdoors or in the special smoking-rooms. At the same time, there is no restriction for grass smoking indoors. Yes, the drugs are legalized here, but the sellers of numerous coffee-shops kindly advise you a sort of grass less dangerous for your health.

      Don't you smoke grass? You can walk along Red-Light District where the seminude joy therapists of different nationalities and ages are standing in the shop-windows and offering to amuse leisure for 100 Euros. And in the neighboring "erotic theatres", right on the stage within sight of live audience the clean-limbed men and women are actively making love.

      And where can ordinary townspeople make love? Don't worry, Amsterdam's authorities allowed the couples in love to make sex in one of the most popular parks of the city - in Vondelpark, which is visited by 10 million of people every year, but they forbid to air the unleashed dogs there.

      Generally, come! Amsterdam will offer you impressions suited to every fancy: ancient architecture and arts, emotional night life and wonderful charming of local inhabitants.

I LOVE the website, but I'm allow to make a few remarks... The text gives me the impression the writer has spend his time in Amsterdam by entertaining himself in the red-light district and the coffeeshops, INSTEAD of visiting the excellent museum like the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh, having a walk along the beautiful canals.

This following text is simply NOT true....

Amsterdam's authorities allowed the couples in love to make sex in one of the most popular parks of the city.

Is it possible this writer was smoking some cannabis for inspiration to write this text? : )

Mai Blorecia, Denmark

peter kirchner, Austria

Beautiful~would love to visit and I assure you I would visit for the right reasons
André H, Netherlands I commend you for taking up for Amsterdam and Holland. Many people think Amsterdam and Holland are full of sorted people rolling in public areas having sex while smoking drugs. I think this is a horrible light to shine on Amsterdam and Holland. You are correct others come and ruin your Amsterdam and Holland.
Too bad we can't be more selective of tourists.
Surely there is so much more to Amsterdam and Holland than sex and drugs. Sex and drugs....yawn...very boring....can be had anywhere however the beauty of Amsterdam and Holland is unique!

Ada Ogren, Netherlands

Have lived in Amsterdam and The Hague for 8 years. All my family still resides there. Left in 1958 for the USA. Have been back just 3 times and found The Netherlands changed and not for the good either. Teveel gesluierde mensen.

Rene Donk, USA

Of course you can smoke in your own house. You can not smoke in public buildings like cafe's and restaurants and gouverment buildings. That's it

While on business in Chester,UK I chose to fly to Amsterdam, left Manchester airport 8 AM. London airport was a mob scene all fogged as well as Amsterdam: At midnight three of us drew straws for the last seat. I won. Shortly after landing I met a charming local woman, whom I took to dinner the next few evenings...

Weston Haskell, USA

lelia dima, Romania

left Holland in 1957 but I go back every three years . The pictures are fantastic.

Joop Wulder, Canada

I find it interesting that a lot of the commentators are Dutch who have migrated to Australia. I was fortunate to travelled on business between Den Helder and Amsterdam in the Netherlands and Sydney and Canberra in Australia. I was always treated very kindly in both countries and wish to thank all of the people I came into contact with in both countries ( as well as many more) for their courtesy. I only wish we Americans treated our guests as well as I have been treated. Thank you to all. These pictures are very special and bring back memories of many coutries I visited.

Joe Garrett, USA

Nice too see a small part of my birth country after 50 odd years. Thank you !!!!

payam farsi, Iran

Thank you for the great picturs,thay are breath taken,keep up the good work.

ken middleton, USA

What a nonsense in your introduction. If smoking is not allowed you cannot smoke canabis either. The redlight district is very limited these days and caters the frustrated foreigners who live in countries where people aren't allowed a thing. Also it attracts attracts the permanently drunken lads from the UK who spoil every city on the continent.
The gentlemen who thinks arabic is the main language is completely out of his mind. Dutch is the language to use. English for visitors. Minorities usually keep their own language going. And maroccans don't speak arabic.
If you think you can have sex in the Vondelpark you are crazy and will wind up in jail in no time.

André H, Netherlands

I found Dam Square and Damstraat on your TOUR MAP, it extremely wonderful. 20 years ago I have been there, buy something at 'AMSTERDAM C, DAMSTRAAT 6, ANTIQUES'. Are they still there?
Very thanks for you!

Ming Xin Dai, China

No one wants to visit Oz (except my dear 3rd cousin who has been here a few times :) , if I want to see the others I have to go there.. planning a trip for 2013.. second time back..

Hanny N, Australia

Kati Bowen, USA

Left Holland 1967 lived in Wormer but went to school in Amsterdam to learn my trade went back in 2010 for the first time with my wife who was born there but left in 1956 her first time as well what a fantastic time not much changed in the cities just grown still plenty of fields for grazing and all so nice and green would love to go back again 2016 saving our pennies now TOP SITE KEEP IT UP

Gerard Noordermeer, Australia

To all you excited people about Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I too grew up there and the memories are great, but.......I for one go back to Holland every few years and at this point just get away from Amsterdam as fast as I can. May I suggest to any one returning there for a visit, do not expect anything to be as you remember it Mc.Donald everywhere and you will be hearing very little Dutch. Arabic is spoken mainly and everywhere.
Once away from the city the country side is still beautiful!

Hennij van Krimpen, other...

Thanks for your opinion.

Varvara, AirPano

I was born in Amsterdam and spent the first 17 years of my life there. Loved it, sorry my parents took me to Australia. Planning to go back in the next 3 years after an absence of 45 years no less. I wonder how I will feel.

Hans Bruitzman, Australia

Excellent, Inspirational, Fantastic. A "MUST SEE".

John Malone, United Kingdom


Gerhardt Hofmann, Australia

You brought back memories of my childhood! My Mom and I would walk down the Kalverstraat to Het Dam and watch the poppet show, I believe it was called Jan Klaazen.
Thank you for the great photography!

Antoinette Hurkmans Quesada, USA

Your introductory commentary on Amsterdam, The Netherlands is insulting and degrading. To focus on sex and drugs and not on the remarkable history of this great city shows your lack of knowledge of this great city.

Wes van der Lee

Dear Wes,
we are not historians but photographers.

If somebody is interested in the history of Amsterdam, it can be found in Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amsterdam. We wrote only what we had seen with our own eyes. It hardly can be denied. However, if you a real patriot of Amsterdam, please, write an interesting article about the city and we'll place it on our site.

Varvara, AirPano

I was born and raised in Amsterdam. Have lived in the USA (Calif) for more than 50 years, but Amsterdam is my hart and soul
