The city arose from its ashes and became to boast one of Europe’s most impressive skylines.

The Zeedijk was once one of the most dangerous streets in Amsterdam where seafarers were looking for entertainment. Nowadays you will find lively and inviting Dutch pubs and restaurants instead of the dark bars from back then.
