Euro Dentistry 2021 Meeting & Hospitality
Amsterdam is the capital and the Netherlands' most populous city. Amsterdam is known colloquially as the "Venice of the North," attributed by the large number of canals that make up a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Amsterdam is known mainly for its artistic heritage, elaborate canal system and narrow houses with gabled facades, Golden Age legacies of the city in the 17th century. The city is also well known for its nightlife and festival activity. Cycling is key to the city’s character, and there are many bike paths. The city continues to be popular for its countless Chinese and Indonesian restaurants and for the hundreds of houseboats that line its canals. Since the mid-1960s Amsterdam also has been known for a permissive atmosphere and it attracts plenty of tourists looking for an alternative lifestyle. Amsterdam has much to offer as a centre for the arts. There are about 40 museums, which attract about four million visitors annually. The inner-city architecture is a delight for many cultural-interested tourists, who are looking for the beautifully preserved Golden Age canal-side mansions and numerous historic monuments, including the Royal Palace.
