Let’s see what is so interesting about this city and why it attracts millions of people every year.

Interesting about Amsterdam

Amsterdam has always been one of the most interesting cities in Europe. It has been known for centuries for its hospitality and magnificent architecture. There are more than 90 fresh water canals with more than a thousand bridges in Amsterdam. Millions of small colorful lights illuminate them at night which gives the city a unique fairy-tale-like look. As the whole territory is located on a swampland, it’s impossible to erect huge skyscrapers and wide highways; however, this it doesn’t reduce the numbers of tourists who come here every year. Paved narrow streets with big flowerbeds full of tulips, old houses and plenty of parks give the city an atmosphere of coziness, comfort, friendliness, and romanticism. With a few words you can describe Amsterdam as a mixture of everything ultra-modern and medieval. Old balustrades here are harmoniously blended with mirror facades, museums and fashionable boutiques are located on one street; in minimalist cafes you can try beer made following an old monks’ receipt.  Amsterdam has a well-developed system of public transportation: metro, buses, high-speed and traditional trams, taxis and ferry service. However, you are more likely to see local people riding bicycles or walking. There are very many bike lanes in the city with their own traffic lights. When the time comes to say goodbye to their iron friend they dump it in the canal. That’s why the bottom of the most popular canals is covered with old bicycles.

Curious Facts about the Red Light District

Amsterdam has always been one of the most broad- minded cities in Europe.  The Red light district in Amsterdam officially called De Walletjes, and is the most famous of its kind in the world. You can find others in Paris, Hamburg, London, Sydney, Tokyo and many other cities all over the world.  

There are more than three hundred one-room cabins with red windows in this district where women of the night provide their services for customers. These women have their own trade union, employment benefits and pay taxes to the government.

Some Other must-see places in Amsterdam

In Amsterdam every tourist will be able find something they’ll like. There are many clubs, restaurants, cafes, landmarks that have a great historical value, museums and art galleries with wonderful paintings and just beautiful places. Here are some of them:

  1. Van Gogh Museum. The exposition of the Museum includes two hundred canvases of this great artist. It is the largest collection in the world, having a value of about ten million Euros. It has been open since 1973.
  2. Heineken Brewery.  Here you will be able to not only look at professionally-done advertising posters, but also learn about the brewers’ family history, look at the equipment necessary for brewing good beer, and of course, try it. There is also a souvenir shop on the property of the museum where you can buy a bottle opener, a towel, a magnet and many other things with the logo of the company.
  3. Flower market. Most people associate Amsterdam with tulips which is why a flower market is a must-see! Here you can find beautiful flowers of different colors, take a picture with them and buy some bulbs to bring back home.

These are some of the reasons people love Amsterdam and keep coming here every year. Have you ever been there? If you have, you’ll surely have a lot of interesting things that attract you in this city to add to our list. If you still haven’t had a chance to visit this wonderful place, the least you can do is buy this magnificent piece of art and enjoy its wonderful beauty. Who knows, maybe one day, it will inspire you to get online one day and book a one-way ticket to this fantastic city of contradictions.

Testimonials
I recently purchased the original painting "Three Friends". It's incredibly beautiful and so vibrant in colour. It's my first piece from Afremov and this will certainly not be my last. What a great artist! Janice, Toronto, ON May 2014

We wrote a testimonial last month and wanted again to share our "too good to be true" experience. Again, amazing customer service from start to finish, very quick shipping, and two simply beautiful paintings. We continue to be blown away with this whole experience. The paintings are breathtaking and mean so much to us. We would love more of Leonid's art for our collection and will have to find some wall space!!
