Must see in Amsterdam

Albert Cuyp Market 
While names like Rembrandt and van Gogh may be very popular outside of the Netherlands, lots of tourists still struggle to mention the field where Albert Cuyp shone like the brightest morning star. Albert Cuyp is known for his many colorful Dutch landscape paintings in the Dutch Golden Age. His landscapes bathed in a sunny, Mediterranean light, were the works of a master painter and genius.
Albert Cuyp died in 1691 and was buried in the Augustijnenkerk in Dordrecht, the same city where he was born. The Albert Cuyp market is named after him and is known to have started as a market with special collections of street windows and handcarts. Read more

 

Dam Square 
Dam Square is considered to be the heart of Amsterdam. The town square of Amsterdam estimates 100 by 200 metres. It owes its name from the dam it was build upon. The dam dates back from 1275, at a time when Amsterdam was still at sea and was a harbour city. Boats would be able to moor  near Dam Square and there used to be a fish market. Later it became the official city centre and city hall was build there. The original city hall burned down in 1652 after which it was replaced by the building known today as The Royal Palace. It is surrounded by De Nieuwe Kerk (New Church) from 1408, the Bijenkorf shopping mall, Madame Tussauds, Hotel Krasnapolsky and several other shops and restaurants. Opposite to the to the Royal Palace you’ll find the National Monument. Dame Square connects several streets. Read more

 

 

Leidseplein Square
Leidseplein is one of the most famous and busiest squares of Amsterdam for nightlife, entertainment, shopping and central location for public transport. It is located at the southern end of Amsterdam’s central canal ring, only a few footsteps away from the main entrance of the amazing Vondelpark. This is one of Amsterdams best parks. In addition, the Leidseplein faces one of the busiest streets of Amsterdam, the Leidsestraat. The translation that fits the best for Leidseplein would be Leiden Square.
