Amsterdam, Rijksmuseum: home of the Nachtwacht – The Netherlands

with No Comments

The Rijksmuseum.

This National Museum was designed by P.J.H Cuypers. Cuypers also designed Central Station in Amsterdam, but mostly Catholic Churches. You can see this Catholic influence, because the building looks just like a Catholic Church. Rumor has that none of the members of the Dutch Royal Family ever visited it, because of they are Protestant. Anyhow, it’s been visited by millions who come here to look at the art displays.

We also have a blog. On it you will for a story about 5 smaller cities in the UK.

When people from outside the UK visit England most people go to London. Of course this is a great city to visit. There is a lot to see and do and when it’s your first time in this fascinating country I can definitely recommend it. You can easily spend a week in “the Big Smoke” and still only see a few things. Museums, theaters, parks, nightlife. There is plenty to do for everyone. I wrote about it in a previous story on our blog.
