Live video stream of Dam Square, Amsterdam, Netherlands.
Amsterdam is amazing. It seems that at every step you should meet good a cloud of fragrant smoke, the windows of reddish cheeky wink lightly dressed women, and on the streets of the city to walk very often “freaks” and eccentrics from all over Europe. In a word, debauchery and vice. But in reality – small Dutch, Van Gogh’s palette, field of tulips, idyllic canals and deftly clipped the local tourist granny bikes. Miracle? No – this is Amsterdam, it is utterly different, but always yours. I want entertainment – go on the Leidseplein. The strict traditionalist and a fan of Bruegel – you in the Museum Quarter. Gentle fan succulents and bulbs? Yes, for God’s sake: that’s Keukenhof and the flower market. Amsterdam no one hurt, but all the charm.
Nivezeyds, despite the name, is not so “new” quarter – its main church with a pretty logical name Nieuwe Kerk (New Church) was built in 1408, however, he has something that can not boast Audzeyds – respectability and more relaxed atmosphere for that quarter also often called the “intellectual center” of Amsterdam. Nivezeyds Center – Dam Square is the Royal Palace. Around – the main shopping avenue of the city: the Kalverstraat and Nivendeyk.
Dam Square, as it should be the center of an old European city, rich in tourist attractions. Many of them have been linked to a variety of historical events. For example, one of the major architectural landmarks of the area – the Gothic church Nieuwe Kerk – was built at the turn of the 14th and 15th centuries. Its ancient walls are buried many famous Dutch and the crown on the power of the representatives of the royal families.
In the western part of the square is the Royal Palace, designed in the neoclassical style, next to him – a church of the 15th century Nieuwe Kerk Museum and Madame Tussauds.
The attention and the former Town Hall, which later became the Royal Palace, which is slightly smaller age, which, however, did not detract from its architectural merits. The building was built in the 17th century and served as the center of the city administration, and in 1808 came a new tenant here – Louis Bonaparte. There is also a very modern monument – National Monument, built in the 50s. the last century in memory of the victims of World War II.
