The charming capital of The Netherlands is one of the most bicycle-friendly cities in the world, being well equipped with cycle-paths, lanes and other facilities for cyclists. But good old Amsterdam has much more to offer than an exceptional city planning. The place is also known for its canals, (most of which you can cruise by boat); its vivid nightlife and a good selection of museums (Vang Gogh Museum is the pick of the bunch). Home to 180 nationalities, the city is often chosen by those who want to live in a multicultural city.
It doesn’t matter if you’re going to work or study in The Hague, you will definitely fall in love in with its bustling cultural scene. The city has more than 30 museums, like The Gemeentemuseum and The Mautirshuis, where you can see masterpieces like “The Girl with a Pearl Earring”, by Johannes Vermeer. Located on the western coast of the Netherlands, the city is also known as the “International City of Peace”, as it houses the International Court of Justice, the main judicial arm of the United Nations. No wonder the city is becoming one of the top spots for those who want to spend some time abroad.
