“Painting is the grandchild of Nature. It is related to God.” – Rembrandt
The iconic city of Rembrandt is known for its pretty flower markets, picture-perfect canals, mansions and windmills – but, perhaps above all, it is a true cultural hub with numerous cultural attractions. A result of cosmopolitan influences, the multifaceted Amsterdam is bursting with museums, galleries and theatres, having the world’s highest museum density. On top of that, lining the UNESCO World Heritage canals, one can find narrow streets, beautiful historical buildings, crowded cafes and a plethora of shops to browse in, making Amsterdam the perfect destination for any type of traveler.
The first Europeans to reach the shores of what is now the US and survive to tell the tale arrived way back in 1620. The Mayflower Society estimate there are now 10 million Americans with European heritage, descendants of the 102 brave souls that arrived aboard the Mayflower. In the years since, waves of immigrants from every European country have added vigor, energy, and enterprise to make America the great country it is today.
