Amsterdam is the nominal capital of the Netherlands while the political capital is The Hague. Here, you will find all the government buildings. The name Amsterdam comes from the river Amstel and the Dam that was built to enable them construct the city.
Amsterdam is where modern architecture developed organically between facades of historical buildings. Since it is not a big city, all sites of interest are within an acceptable distance. This is why Amsterdam is so popular with lovers of architecture. (culled from the internet)

The above photos are sights from the city of Amsterdam.
Peace and Love!
