    Praça sem relevância qualquer estética, que não justifica mais que cinco minutos.

    Amsterdamın taksim meydanı.Amsterdama gelecekseniz yaz da olsa yanınıza kesinlikle kalın mont ve yağmurluk alın.Hava bi sıcak bi soğuk ama insanlar sıcak kanlı fransızlar gibi soğuk değiller😁

    Good plaza with great talents shows around. However, you have to watch out for your stuff.

    Best of Amsterdam. Nice places to have dinner, drinks and fun. A lot of people but always nice to take a walk at any time of the day or night!
