Amsterdam-The Netherlands:

The Netherlands capital is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. With its more than 100 channels it is a rival to Venice beauties. It has famous museums, historical buildings (that have their origin in the Middle Ages) and also very modern ones. The buildings are always colorful and the windows are highlighted. But the city also has a liberal atmosphere, with several coffee shops and interesting bars in the “Red Light” zone.  Other impressions on this surprising, contrasting and colorful  European city may be read in "Lilian’s Chronicles",  written by the social communication student Lilian Piraine Laranja for the section "Câmera Móvel" of this site.  Access, check and confirm our hint!
