We had a great night at the opera. And the Dutch opera creates very beautiful opera’s in modern settings. If you are in Amsterdam and enjoy opera ballet and such you should pay a visit here for sure.

visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)
while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at
Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s
