Cruising in Amsterdam Canals

Let's go travel Europe again! It seems that I was asleep for some days and was not able to update this blog. I am back now and I will take you to the capital and largest city of Netherlands. To give you a little information about Amsterdam, it derived its name from Amstellerdam, a dam in the river Amstel. This city is also considered to be the financial and cultural center of Netherlands.

I would suggest that when you visit this city, you better take a cruise in its canals. It is one of the best way to see and experience the city. A tour guide will also explain the sights you will be passing while cruising. We also made a cruise during our trip last August 2010.

Don't you know that Netherlands has a lot of canals? It seems that it looks like Venice in Italy where you can also see a lot of canals and bridges around the city. To name the main canals of Amsterdam include Singel, Herengracht, Keizersgracht and Prinsengracht. The 17th century canals of Amsterdam were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in July 2010.
