"War Memorial"

Perhaps one of the best known of Amsterdam's attractions, Dam Square forms not only the core of the present-day city but is also where Amsterdam first took root in the 13th Century. It is here that the River Amsel was originally dammed, lending the city its name and giving rise to the thriving fishing village that would eventually become Amsterdam. Today, the town square is the cultural epicenter of the city, playing host to iconic attractions like the neo-classical Royal Palace, the Gothic Nieuwe Kerk, and the National Monument - a stoic memorial to the victims of World War II. Also at the square are Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum, Hotel Krasnapolsky and the Bijenkorf department store, while the De Wallen is just a short walk away. All around are visions of architectural mastery and markers of a colorful past. Numerous carnivals, festivals, concerts and other events are often hosted here as well, creating a vibrant, and vivacious space that is quintessentially Amsterdam.
