With more than 100 kilometers of canals, 90 islands and 1500 bridges it's not surprising they call Amsterdam the 'Venice of the north'. The 3 main canals are the; Herengracht, Prinsengracht and the Keizersgracht canal. They were dug out in the 17th century as part of city planning due to over immigration 'The Dutch golden age'.
