Pinsteps. National Maritime Museum, Amsterdam
Languages: ru, en

In the golden seventeenth century of Amsterdam, when international maritime trade expanded rapidly, the Admiralty ordered the construction of an arsenal. Since 1655, shipbuilding equipment has been stored in this beautiful building in the style of classicism, stored gunpowder, weapons and ammunition, supplies of drinking water for the crews of ships and everything that was necessary for making long sea voyages of the famous East Indian Trading Company. Today, in this building on three floors is a maritime museum. It has 25 rooms. The ground floor is reserved for temporary exhibitions, and the royal longboat of 1818 is also presented here. On the second floor, trading campaigns, sea battles and fabulous trade deals of the East Indian Company are described, and on the third, the theme of water and sailing is revealed. The most interesting is the ship on the pier - we will talk about it further. It’s worth 2 hours to visit the museum.

“Water” route through Amsterdam for a guys get together.

This route is ideal for a male company or for fathers and sons. The day will begin with the famous Maritime Museum and one of Amsterdam's most famous golden age ships. This sailboat belonged to the legendary East Indian company, and headed for the islands of the Indonesian archipelago in the late autumn of 1748, and what you will learn later on an exact copy of the ship moored in the eastern harbor. Next you will find a cheerful and serious, bright and real, fully gaming and very academic museum of science Nemo. Here you can find out a bunch of unexpected facts about a person and the world and confirm your guesses by experience, and let a light drink drunk on the observation deck relax, enjoying the views of the city. Further - the most unexpected acquaintance with Amsterdam - from a surfboard sliding on the quiet water of the canals! This new and growing type of tourism is called sapsurfing and combines a bit of sport, a little courage and an indescribable feeling. We propose to end the day in a small brewery and bar near the old Dutch mill. Here you can taste eight sorts of local beer and get to know the excellent triple ale. Have a great day!
