Dreaming of Amsterdam

Dreaming of Amsterdamfeatured

I fell in love with Amsterdam instantly, with its endless canals, its leaning houses, its many museums and its myriads of imperturbable bike riders. Somehow everything here is tinier and cosier. The streets may be filled with tourists and cyclists, but you always get the feeling of being one-on-one with the city. Take a stroll through Amsterdam with me.

Я влюбилась в Амстердам с первого взгляда. Бесконечная череда каналов, множество музеев, покосившиеся домики и тысячи, тысячи невозмутимых велосипедистов. Здесь все как-то меньше, теплее, уютнее. Толпы туристов и велосипедистов, как ни странно, совсем не мешают наслаждаться городом. Прогуляемся по Амстердаму вместе?

В Амстердаме обязательно нужно ходить по музеям, но если времени совсем нет, постарайтесь хотя бы попасть в Рейксмусеум – главный музей страны. Не пропустите невероятный библиотеку авторства Пьера Кайперса и, конечно, коллекцию Голландского золотого века на втором этаже. Там же есть очаровательнейшие кукольные домики, с точностью повторяющие настоящие дома голландской аристократии.

Try to fit at least three museums in your trip, but if nothing else, visit the  Rijksmuseum. Don’t miss the magnificent library by Pierre Cuypers (above) and the Gallery of Honour that holds a big collection of Dutch Golden Age masterpieces. Unbelievably detailed dollhouses are a nice bonus.

Do you remember that “love me” graffiti from my Paris post? Is it some kind of an international movement?
