    Discovering Amsterdam
    Historic canals lined by narrow houses with gabled facades form the backdrop for a postcard-worthy image of Amsterdam. The city is also famous for its artistic heritage, magnificent art galleries, and bustling streets. And that’s not all, there’s something exciting for the foodies as well; the city’s innovative drinking and dining scenes.

    Cozy Amsterdam
    Amsterdam is colloquially known as Venice of the North because of the magnificent canals it is built on, vintage architecture, and around 1,700 bridges. The city is known for cultural treasures like the secrets buried inside Anne Frank House, Rijksmuseum’s fabulous collection of Dutch art, and the sombre artworks at Van Gogh Museum. Get ready for some bargain-hunting at the flea markets that are spread across the city.

    Amsterdam for international students
    The city of Amsterdam offers various off-campus student housing options such as shared or independent apartments with a private kitchen and bathroom. As a student, there is plenty of time to explore Amsterdam’s cultural delights: spend a day cycling through the city’s picturesque route and taking in the view. One of the other ways to get a panoramic view of the city is by cruising on a boat and learning more about the historic canal ring.
