Pinsteps. “The house on three canals”, (Huis op de drie Grachten) Amsterdam

"The house on three canals," (Huis op de Drie Grachten) Amsterdam We went to a beautiful historical part of the city, which was built up during the golden age of Amsterdam - the seventeenth century. The house on three channels is called so because it goes out with its three sides to three different channels. The channel along which we came is called Gimburgwal. Its name comes from the "Gutter" - such it was until the zloty century. We crossed the Sleutelbrug bridge, from where we had a beautiful view of Binnengasthuis - the former city hospital, and now the university building. You can go in and take a walk inside. The pleasant atmosphere will remind us that this place was an old bookyard. Mostly Jewish sellers sold books here, and next to them, Italian craftsmen sharpened scissors.
