Amsterdam
closeAmsterdam is the capital of the Netherlands, even though neither the Dutch government nor the head of state resides in Amsterdam. The largest city in the Netherlands is also the country's biggest tourist-draw.
Most of Amsterdam's top attractions date from the city's heyday during the seventeenth century when it was a financial and political powerhouse. Most of the city's famous canals and harmonious architecture stems from this era.
