"Smoky" Amsterdam

• "Smoky" Amsterdam

Amsterdam is the capital of the kingdom since 1814. The town's name is derived from two words: "Amstel" - the name of the river and the "ladies" - "dam". In the XII century it was a small fishing village, but in the days of the Golden Age of the Netherlands, Amsterdam became one of the most important ports in the world.

This is one of my favorite cities. At this time the city was very different from what I used to see almost all the days spent there, the town was shrouded in a dense shroud of fog, although the city went to joke that all the fault of "the Cup Cannabis", which took place at this time here.

Going out in the evening of the building of the central station, I did not know the city, so unusually familiar places look in the fog:
