Street Art in Amsterdam.

Street art in Amsterdam? Yes, it’s true. There’s much more to the capital city of The Netherlands than its iconic canals, red light district, modern architecture and “coffee shops“.

Just like when I traveled to Szczecin, Poland and Cologne, Germany, I’ve  spent a good part of my weekend in Amsterdam wandering the city looking for street art. And I’m happy to report that I was not disappointed …
