36 degrees in Amsterdam ☀️ .

Amsterdam, capital of the Netherlands, has more than one hundred kilometers of grachten, about 90 islands and 1,500 bridges. Amsterdam burst out of its seams in the early 17th century. The city experienced its Golden age: economically, politically and culturally. A major expansion was desperately needed to accommodate all the new and future residents. The city council therefore drew up an expansion plan that would make Amsterdam five times bigger. The implementation of this canal belt expansion started in 1613. 🚤 .
.
Also the trees along the canals were extraordinary in those days. Amsterdam was the first city in Europe that planted trees on a large scale. Even before the year 1600, trees like linden (and later elm trees) were planted after each newly dug canal. Trees weren't only planted for aesthetic reasons but also to reinforce the embankments and later because of their air purifying effect. 🌳
