About a Square that's Full of Surprises in AmsterdamOn the city's outer ring, a few minutes' walk from Dam Square, you will see Leidseplein Square. It is one of the three largest squares in Amsterdam. The squares are for tourists and full of attractions. It is possible to find restaurants, cafes, unique hotels and the big Amsterdam Casino.
Around the square you will see circus artists, street performers, fire blowers and many more colorful personalities. The variety of tourists that come here also adds to the colorful and vibrant atmosphere. You will hear all kinds of languages here spoken by visitors from all over the world.
On summer days you will find the square alive with people who come here to rest in the cafes or restaurants around, or just wander here to breath the fresh air. On cold winter days, the square becomes an ice rink for children. During the evenings you can pass the time here in one of the pubs, at clubs, or at one of the "Coffee Shops" - stores where weed is sold, which is legal in Amsterdam.
If you are fans of the Ajax soccer teams, notice that the players sometimes, after victories, come and celebrate in the theater building, and mingle with their fans.
Also, the Dutch pronunciation for the name is "Leidsofline," so if you really want to feel a part of the culture, say Leidsofline!
So come on guys, to Leisofline!
