This weekend we decided to go to Amsterdam with our friends and uncover its beauty in lockdown. As visualised, it is even more beautiful. As expected, there were not many people, of course no tourists crowd. Empty Amsterdam was looking even more beautiful than ever.
Despite of all the facts surely I missed the crowd, bars, roof cafes, restaurants, theaters, cheese shops, window shopping, bikers, dam square and much more. I mean, this is what Amsterdam is famous for.
