Ofcourse the ignorant outsider will see Amsterdam as one of the few places in the world where prostitution and smoking pot are legal. However, the capitol of The Netherlands is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, with a very rich tradition. The city center consists of mainly warehouses built a few hundred years ago. It was that the ships set out to explore the Americas and the far east. Nowadays, people are among the best English speakers in Europe and the city is one of the safest places I know. It's a multicultural example for the rest of the world.
Amsterdam was a thriving city when New York was a puddle of mud - and it shows.

Capital of The Netherlands, known as Jamaica of Europe because of it's tolerant (soft)drugs policy. The best example for any major city and an extremely nice place to be at.
My time in Amsterdam was really fucking great, I only wish I'd remembered something

The Capital of the Netherlands. Most known as the Jamaica of Europe, because of the legalization of marijuana. The government in Amsterdam differentiates marijuana from other hard drugs (cocaine, heroin, crack, etc) Other things that are legal are prostitution, (selling sex for money) Euthanasia, (assisted suicide) and absinthe. (a drink illegal in America, because it causes you to hallucinate) Amsterdam is famous for its red light district. The people are known for speaking English very well, as well as Dutch. To Americans it seems like heaven!
Amsterdam is heaven.

A city in Holland where there is legalized prostitution, marijuana, and pretty much everything else. You can drink, smoke, and fuck at 16.
When I was 15 I went to Am-Dam and smoked a joint of salvia than saw hookers in glass cages...good times.
