Amsterdam is the capital and most populous municipality of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Its status as the capital is mandated by the Constitution of the Netherlands, although it is not the seat of the government, which is The Hague. Amsterdam has a population of 840,486 within the city proper, 1,337,743 in the urban area, and 2,431,000 in the Amsterdam metropolitan area. The city is located in the province of North Holland in the west of the country, and is also North Holland’s largest city. It comprises much of the northern part of the Randstad, one of the larger conurbations in Europe, with a population of approximately 7 million.

  3. Fell in love with Amsterdam when we visited in 2016. Canal tour in late afternoon in late March.

  4. A wonderful scene with the lights on the water. Interesting your post!

  5. I have been to Amsterdam a number of times, and always enjoy the galleries etc. But the houses and shops on both sides of the canals make this city stand out.
