WHY HOUSES IN AMSTERDAM ARE CROOKED AND LEANING FORWARD?
The houses in Amsterdam are leaning forward for several reasons: 1. They used to be warehouses and it was easier to pull things up with a use of the hook 2. They were constructed on top of sandy soil 3. The owners wanted to gain terrain without having to pay extra taxes for the meters of facade

WHAT ARCHITECTURAL STYLE IS AMSTERDAM?
The most emblematic Dutch houses follow the architectural style of the Dutch Golden Ages, a unique and peculiar Dutch interpretation of the Baroque that developed between the 16th and 17th centuries. In certain parts of the city one can find Art Deco and the Amsterdam School of Architecture. #architecture #amsterdam #travelamsterdam #visitAmsterdam #heritage #canals #houses #narrowhouses

WHY HOUSES IN AMSTERDAM ARE SO NARROW?
Houses in Amsterdam are very narrow because in Medieval times owners would have to pay for the meter of the facade facing the canals. To avoid paying such high taxes, houses were designed to be narrow yet tall and functional. These buildings tend to be narrow, leaning forward and facing the water.

Yes. Amsterdam is below sea level, just like the half of the Netherlands. The city is situated around 2 meters below sea level and the lowest point in the Netherlands is almost 7 meters below sea level. The lowest parts of the country are the western parts of the Netherlands – Noord-Holland, Zuid-Holland, and Zeeland. #amsterdam #amsterdamfaq #europe #traveleurope #travelbucketlist #travel #travelbucket #travelnetherlands #travelamsterdam
