no Amsterdam has, the streets, the names etc. are just the same as hundred of years ago. Check wikipedia and other sites on the internet they will tell you the same. And Amsterdam Centre is very widespread.. with thousands off historical buildings.

Wikipedia will also tell you that Seville has the biggest historical center of Europe. Seville's size is measured in square kilometres, Amsterdam however uses the number of monuments which is unfair. Not every historical building is necessarily a monument or vice versa.

I dont know how they measure it... but the city centre is also widespread and low build...

Paris and Rome's historical centres must surely be bigger?

Amsterdam looks amazing btw

Wrong the historical centre of Paris is a lot smaller, even this historical centre has many 80's housing buildings.
Don't forget that tourist visit less than 20% of inner Paris.
The rest of Paris was build between the 19th and the 21th century.
