What can Amsterdam offer its visitors? In this city travellers can find not only a wide range of historical and cultural places of interest, such as, for example, The Royal Palace or the Rijksmuseum, but also many unique and funny places, such as the Hash-Marijuana-Hemp Museum. In general, Amsterdam is mostly famous for its museums, which keep attracting millions of tourists every year. Probably, it’s nearly impossible to find a person, who has never heard of Van Gogh Museum or The House of Anne Frank, and these are not all popular establishments in the city. There are more than 50 different museums in Amsterdam without taking into consideration a great number of wonderful art galleries.
The Royal Palace.
The Royal Palace and Dam Square, which is adjacent to it, are situated right in the centre of the city. They have the full right to be called the heart of Amsterdam. The internationally famous Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum is located nearby. Once The Royal Palace used to be a city hall, and it was not until Napoleon helped his brother Louie to occupy the Dutch throne then it was turned into The Royal Palace. Nowadays, everybody has an opportunity to enter the palace and enjoy the look of its inner premises, and make a walk along its corridors. Of course, all excursions are made only when the palace is not used by the royal family.
