Daily Images | Amsterdam

Daily Images – Amsterdam’s name is derived from Amstelredamme, a dam in the river Amstel. Settled as a small fishing village in the late 12th century, Amsterdam became one of the most important ports in the world during the Dutch Golden Age, a result of its innovative developments in trade. During that time, the city was the leading centre for finance and diamonds. In the 19th and 20th centuries, the city expanded, and many new neighbourhoods and suburbs were formed. The 17th-century canals of Amsterdam were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in July 2010.
