I am an art specialist who travels a lot. I've lived in Venice, London, Amsterdam, Berlin and Saint Petersburg and travelled all across Europe because of my job, currently I reside in Moscow. I'm really glad to share my personal discoveries in terms of local food, art&culture places and other activities with a wider audience!

Start your day at one of the most important museums in the world. Many masterpieces by Rembrandt, Frans Hals, Vermeer and artists of the Flemish School can be found here in this great example of a modern yet traditional museum.
This museum building is often called 'the bathtub' because of its unique look. Inside you'll find a first-class collection of Avant-garde art, and both Dutch and international art created in the first half of the 20th century. The museum also showcases a diverse range of temporary exhibits of contemporary design, film and digital art. Something for everyone.
This restaurant embodies the essence of Dutch seafood craftsmanship; and as it's not far from the city's main museums, it's the perfect place to stop for a delicious lunch of fresh, local seafood, during a day jam-packed with sightseeing.
Here you will find the world's largest collection of Van Gogh's oeuvres, along with works by his contemporaries including Gaugin, Georges Seurat and Claude Monet. The building is a masterpiece in itself, designed in 1973 by well-known Dutch architect and designer Gerrit Rietveld.
The Jordaan is a vibrant neighborhood with lots of shops, galleries and great views of the canals to explore. And if you're peckish, you'll easily find a nice place for a quick bite here. Among the attractions in this area are The Anne Frank House and Westerkerk Church, where Rembrandt was buried.
Anne Frank was one of the most well-known Jewish victims of the Holocaust — her diary has been translated into over 60 languages, and many films and plays have been based on its entries. The house where Anne's family hid during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands is now a museum with a reconstruction of the 'Secret Annex' where they lived.
It doesn't matter how old you are, 5 or 65 — here you are guaranteed to be amazed by the world of science and experiments! The museum offers a plethora of activities in its laboratories, with 3D models explaining different engineering systems and natural phenomena. One of my favorite parts of NEMO is the Smart Technology exhibit, full of inspiring futuristic ideas!
A unique, futuristic building houses the Dutch Film Institute, which always has a great variety of films, premieres, festivals and exhibits on its calendar. I recommend coming here at the end of the day, when you can see the city illuminated across the harbor through the EYE's panoramic windows; your own free performance of ships and ferries passing by.
