Amsterdam's canals

Amsterdam's canalsWith more than 100 km of canals, Amsterdam is called the "Venice of the North". The canals divide the city into 90 islands that are linked by more than 1300 bridges. The city has three main canals: Herengracht, Prinsengracht, and Keizersgracht. They were dug in the 17th century and form a semi-circular belt around the city center. Alongside the canals are more than 1500 historic listed buildings.

Hi Juka! Woew! These are gorgeous and you caught a wonderful blue sky in Amsterdam! Great shots!
It seems the works at the Rijks are finished; finally!!
And the Dam is always the Dam, though much different from my first time there in 1969... ;))

Now, one week working without coming here and you don’t even remember that
Blogtrotter still exists. But it’s there, even if India 2008 has come to an end… ;)).
Have a great weekend!
