I amsterdam for everybody! I amsterdam for happy people!
"For centuries, freedom has been a part of Amsterdam’s spirit and history. The city is famous for its longstanding acceptance of alternative lifestyles, views or religions. To this day, the relaxed, open-minded and tolerant attitude is a well-known characteristic of Amsterdam.
Tolerance in Amsterdam stems from the deep respect for, and acceptance of, the different ways that people choose to lead their lives. ‘Live and let live’ is a popular motto that sums up the mindset of Amsterdam dwellers. Naturally, the city is known to its European neighbors and foreign visitors as the liberal capital of Europe.
The Dutch Capital is one of the most atmospheric and beautiful cities in the world, boasting a rich history, commercial vitality, diverse cultural backgrounds and high quality of life. But ultimately, the city’s strongest asset is its people: the people who live here, the people who work here, the people who study here, and the people who visit here."
