The Royal Palace of Amsterdam was originally built to be the Town Hall. It is now used by Queen Beatrix for official functions during state visits and other official receptions.
Apart from travel, theatre is one of my passions. I've been involved with theatre since 2003, and I do my best to watch plays and musicals when I get the chance. It shouldn’t come as a surprise, then, that I watched three shows during my two weeks in Europe.
A City Card is a tourist card (or ticket) that’s valid for up to three days and provides the bearer free entry to certain attractions and a host of other privileges. I picked up three-day cards in Amsterdam and Berlin. But were they worth it?
Amsterdam Centraal is Amsterdam’s central railway station. It was opened in 1889 and designed by Pierre Cuypers and A. L. van Gendt. You can see the grandness of the structure. To me, it evokes feelings of great adventure ahead.
