Amsterdam is the capital city of the Netherlands. It derives its name from the Amstel River, which was dammed up to control flooding. Originating as a small fishing village in the late 12th century, Amsterdam became one of the most important ports in the world during the Dutch Golden Age of the 17th century, and became the leading center for the finance and trade sectors.

Among Amsterdam's main attractions are its canals (which had earned it the nickname "the Venice of the North"), the Van Gogh Museum, and the Anne Frank House.
