nice job Kamil. Amsterdam is one of my favourite cities, people are very nice too, but I keep getting lost there because all those buildings look the same, very charming, but very similar. Did you find that too?

It sure is true that visitors can find it difficult to navigate their way through Amsterdam because of the lack of prominent landmarks in the central area.
The omnipresent smell of smoked weed in the air doesn’t help either…

Anyway, I instantly took a liking to the city. Gorgeous, historical apartment buildings, boats passing through the picturesque canals…are admired by thousands of tourists, but I think the most important thing about Amsterdam is its atmosphere. Pictures can’t give justice to that city. One needs to be there and feel it himself/herself.

To me entire Amsterdam has a kind of relaxed atmosphere. Probably it's because the coolest people from all over the world roam its streets.

I would say the city is (all kind of) people friendly.

I know what you mean. Those two cities are the examples of HUMAN friendly international metropolises. You are aware that they are the places of huge opportunities for everybody but at the same time you feel strangely relaxed over there. (kind of like being at a university campus (???)...).
