The 10 Most Beautiful Places in Europe

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Which is the city that comes to your mind first when you are asked about the capital of the Netherlands? Amsterdam or the Hague? Actually, the Hague is the seat of the Dutch government, but the capital and the municipality with the highest number of inhabitants is Amsterdam. One or two days is by far not enough to see all the sights this beautiful city has to offer: its canals, its windmills, its museums, and also its sparkling, colorful and cosmopolitan life. The area around the capital and the neighbouring cities is called the Randstad, and has about 7 million inhabitants.
