We went to one of the most famous streets in the city. It connects Dam Square and the former Coin Square. But this area became a street not so long ago. In 1608, the main channel of the Amstel River passed here, which is displayed in the name of the road. In the old Dutch, Rak in denotes the mainstream. In the photo is a picture of Hendrick Breitner, when Rokin was still a channel.
