Over 90 islands and 1500 bridges were built mainly in the 17th century, which is known as the Dutch Golden Era, including the main canals of Herengracht, Prinsengracht and Keizersgracht. The territory of these 17th century canals has been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. More than 1550 monumental buildings have been constructed along the canals thus a ride in a boat through Amsterdam is a great option of exploring the city. The view of the canals during the sunrise and sunset is particularly amazing and brings the special charm to the historical city.
