That Amsterdam has a lot of history is really noticeable in the old city centre. Old small medieval streets combined with new big shopping streets make up the scenery here. Explore the Wallen (Red Light District) or shop till you drop on the Kalverstraat or Nieuwendijk. All can be done in the Old city centre. Nearby attractions are the Palace on the Dam, Nieuwe Kerk, Red Light District and "The Waag".
