Postcard details: Amsterdam (Dutch Cities - Leuke Post), travelling about 1470 km (913 mi) in 14 days
Amsterdam is the capital of the Netherlands. With more than one million inhabitants in its urban area (and almost two and a half million inhabitants in its metropolitan area), it is the country's largest city and its financial, cultural, and creative centre. Amsterdam derives its name from the city's origin as "Dam" of river "Amstel". In the past, the name was "Amstelredamme" which later changed as "Amsterdam". Amsterdam is one of the most popular destinations in Europe, attracting over 7 million international travellers annually. Found within the province of North Holland, Amsterdam is colloquially referred to as the "Venice of the North", attributed by the large number of canals which form a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
