About Amsterdam

Amsterdam is located in the Western Netherlands, in the province of North Holland, although it is not its capital which is Haarlem.
The river Amstel ends in the city centre and connects to a large number of canals that eventually terminate in the IJ. Amsterdam
is famous for its canals, beautiful houses, so-called coffee shops and Red Light District, but there’s plenty more to this liberal
city than most visitors realise. The city is located in the province of North Holland in the west of the country but is not its capital,
which is Haarlem. The metropolitan area comprises much of the northern part of the Randstad, one of the larger conurbations
in Europe, with a population of approximately 8 million. Amsterdam fans out south from the Amsterdam Central railway station
and Damrak, the main street off the station. The oldest area of the town is known as De Wallen (English: “The Quays”). It lies to
the east of Damrak and contains the city’s famous red light district.
