Amsterdam from above via @dailyoverview

Amsterdam, capital of the Netherlands, has more than one hundred kilometers of canals, about 90 islands and 1,500 bridges. The three main canals, Herengracht, Prinsengracht, and Keizersgracht, dug in the 17th century during the Dutch Golden Age, form concentric belts around the city, known as the Grachtengordel. Alongside the main canals are 1550 monumental buildings. The 17th-century canal ring area, including the Prinsengracht, Keizersgracht, Herengracht and Jordaan, were placed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2010, contributing to Amsterdam's fame as the "Venice of the North".

Much of the Amsterdam canal system is the successful outcome of city planning. In the early part of the 17th century, with immigration rising, a comprehensive plan was put together, calling for four main, concentric half-circles of canals with their ends resting on the IJ Bay. Known as the "grachtengordel", three of the canals are mostly for residential development (Herengracht or ‘’Patricians' Canal’’; Keizersgracht or ‘’Emperor's Canal’’; and Prinsengracht or ‘’Prince's Canal’’), and a fourth, outer canal, Singelgracht, for purposes of defense and water management. The plan also envisaged interconnecting canals along radii; a set of parallel canals in the Jordaan quarter (primarily for the transportation of goods).

Construction proceeded from west to east, across the breadth of the layout, like a gigantic windshield wiper, not from the center outwards as a popular myth has it. Construction of the north-western sector was started in 1613 and was finished around 1625. After 1664, building in the southern sector was started, although slowly because of an economic depression. Several parts of the city and of the urban area are polders, recognisable by their postfix -meer meaning 'lake', such as Bijlmermeer, Haarlemmermeer, and Watergraafsmeer. The canals in Amsterdam are now used as a main form of transportation around the city.

Dutch land reclamation over the past 7 centuries. Before modern technology they had a unique “poulder” system that pumped water out of land plots, using windmills, you can see this explained in a GN video called “How borders come to be” animated by our favorite Dutchman @_mode_7_ . -brilliantmaps.com

🌎🌍🌏 Finally finished my #quarterbackdress and now it's time to choose a new project! My bff and craft soulmate @applewoodroad tagged me in a #widn, and now that I finally finished sewing in ends, I have no idea! 😹 I have lots on my list and a couple of unfinished projects that are begging for attention, but I can't decide. I get pretty attached to the big projects and my hands feel a little lost now hahah. 👐 What are you working on @doropazesknits ? ----------------------------------------------- #shareyourknits #madeunique #watg @woolandthegang @shareyourknits #sugarbabyalpaca #alpaca #backless #sweaterdress #maps #worldview #world #knitting #upsidedown #imakemyclothes #knitlife #sweaterweather #fallfashion #fallwardrobe

По горной тропе к самому южному пляжу парка Марьян - Бене. Каждый раз, пользуясь моим любимым приложением #maps.me я удивляюсь - откуда ему известны те тропки, о которых не знают даже местные? Конечно, я была в Сплите не в сезон, но если на заасфальтированных дорогах встречала довольно много людей, то продираясь сквозь сосны, спотыкаясь об их корни, карабкаясь в гору или спускаясь по крутым древним ступеням, поросшим мхом, вниз, лишь иногда встречала случайного прохожего или велосипедиста #uvalabene #bene #benebeach #marjansplit #marjan #бухтабене #бене #марьян #марьянпарк #marjanparkprirode #marjanpark #split #hrvatska
