The canals of Amsterdam (Amsterdam) 🇳🇱
Amsterdam is called the "Venice of the North" because of its more than 100 kilometers of canals, some 1500 bridges that cross them and around 90 islands.
The three main channels, the Herengracht, the Prinsengracht and the Keizersgracht, which were built in the 17th century during the Dutch "golden age", form concentric belts around the city. Along these canals numerous monuments rise.
This area of the city of the seventeenth century, bounded by the Singelgracht canal, has been included by UNESCO in the list of World Heritage Sites under the name of «Zone of concentric canals of the seventeenth century bounded by the Singelgracht of Amsterdam» in 2010.
