Beauty of Amsterdam, Netherlands..

Amsterdam is the capital and the largest city of the Netherlands, 
located in the province of North Holland in the west of the country.
The city, which had a population of 1.36 million on 1 January 2008,
comprises the northern part of the Randstad, the sixth-largest 
metropolitan area in Europe, with a population of around 6.7 million.

Its name is derived from Amstellerdam, a dam in the river Amstel. 
Settled as a small fishing village in the late 12th century,
Amsterdam became one of the most important ports in the world 
during the Dutch Golden Age, a result of its innovative developments
in trade. During that time, the city was the leading centre 
for finance and diamonds. In the 19th and 20th centuries, 
the city expanded, and many new neighborhoods and suburbs were formed

. The city is the financial and cultural capital of the Netherlands.
Many large Dutch institutions have their headquarters there,
and 7 of the world's top 500 companies, including Philips and ING,
are based in the city. The Amsterdam Stock Exchange, 
the oldest stock exchange in the world, is located in the city centre.
Amsterdam's main attractions, including its historic canals,
the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum, Hermitage Amsterdam,
Anne Frank House, its red-light district, and its many 
cannabis coffee shops draw more than 3.66 million 
international visitors annually
