Amsterdam is the capital of the Netherlands and ideal if you’re looking for a unique yet highly European study location. Founded in the 12th century as a fishing village, Amsterdam became an important trading port during the Dutch Golden Age of the 17th century, creating the iconic canals and low-laying brick buildings that are quintessential to the city today. Though a large city of over 850,000 inhabitants, Amsterdam is relatively compact and you'll find that it is very accessible. This highly diverse cultural hub is known for its renowned museums and art, all with an undeniably cozy and laid-back atmosphere.
