Red Light District
Passing along the old canals with marvelous historic monuments to the streets where the oldest profession is being legally practiced.
In the 17th century many sailors, waiting for work, stayed in the port of Amsterdam. They sought entertainment in taverns, bars and brothels. This is how the Red Light District, aka "De Wallen", originated. The shady bars are now replaced with typical Dutch bars, the drunken sailors are not really frequent and hardly can you be involved in a street fight. But the narrow little streets, tempting red lights, frantic glances and fuzzy whispers still keep the atmosphere of that obscure period.
