The capital, Amsterdam, is a more multicultural city than New York, with 800,000 residents representing 180 different nationalities. The city is characterized by its beautiful 17th-century buildings, 150 canals, and bicycles. There are so many cultural sites to see, such as the Van Gogh museum, the Rembrandt museum, or even more quirky museums in the Red Light District. When the weather is cooler, there are so many bars and cafes to relax in and feel what the Dutch call "gezellig," which basically means cozy. If you like the idea of cycling everywhere, then Amsterdam will appeal, as over half of the population here gets around by bike. Just be sure to keep your bike secure, as bike theft is rife in this city. As English is the unofficial second language of Amsterdam, it is an easy place to live as an international student. The city is also conveniently part of an international train network, making it easy and quick to travel to other cities and countries. Amsterdam airport is also one of Europe’s biggest, with flights to pretty much anywhere.
