The Canals of Amsterdam

Can you imagine a city with a lot of canals? I wish I can make an image of Amsterdam from a bird's eye view. I had seen one in internet and I was amazed how these canals were made around Amsterdam city.

Last summer 2010, me and a friend from the United States did some Europe adventure. One of the cities we visited was the capital city of Netherlands and that is no other than Amsterdam. I am even thinking which cities has more canals, Venice in Italy or in Amsterdam? I was in Venice thrice but I still don't have any idea how many canals does this city has. I need to find this out in my next entry here.

With its many canals Amsterdam is has been called the "Venice of the North". We had a cruise in its canals during our trip last 2010. It was worth-it and even one of the many ways to explore this marvelous.

The seventeenth-century canal ring area of Amsterdam inside the Singelgracht belongs to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
