From the tranquility of the canals to the bustle of the cafés, from the dark splendor of Rembrandt's Night Watch in the Rijskmuseum to the colorful pageant of historic vessels on show during Sail Amsterdam, the Dutch capital offers an irresistible mixture of opposites. This book provides a portrait of what traders in the past called the "Venice of the North." Panoramic shots and more than 100 other photographs work side by side with the text to present Amsterdam from an insider's point of view — not just a tourist's city of flower markets and windmills, but a living community.
