Introduction to Amsterdam
Amsterdam is frequently referred to as the ‘Venice of the North’, because of its many canals and the romantic atmosphere which it gives in the night. Traditionally, Amsterdam was a trading city and it still is, and in order to be successful in trade, good social networks were indispensable. Thus the culture is founded on a tolerant and open society, attracting people from every corner of the globe. Because of this is will be no surprise that Amsterdam has become the most multicultural city in the world, with a melting box of 174 different nationalities. What may sometimes seem contradictory to an outsider is actually the basis of all Amsterdam culture: the freedom to be who you are – and to say what you think. Amsterdam is the city of freedom and this is what attract most people to Amsterdam. Walk in the red light district, smoke a joint and feel free.
