The city of Amsterdam is more than just canals and Rembrandt. Whether you love the beauty of the ballet or prefer a more hard-rock vibe, there is something for everybody in and around this lovely city.

Dutch culture is very much about having and doing things in the right order, in the right place. They’re not afraid to cut loose now and then and have a wild time provided that it’s a time and place you’re supposed to party. The word nette – translated loosely as “neat”, with overtones of propriety and a certain formality – is a good summation of the overall sense of Dutch culture and lifestyle.

So you’ve gotten your visas straightened out, the plane ticket is booked, you’ve got a place arranged, and soon, you’ll be on your way to living in the Netherlands. Moving to the Netherlands can get complicated if you have a lot of furniture you want to take with you, or perhaps a pet.

Bringing pets into the Netherlands can be an intimidating task. There are a number of rules that must be followed before you are allowed to bring your pet into the Netherlands with you. The Netherlands is a rabies-free country, and some extra precautions are in place to keep it that way.

Exploring Amsterdam is an overwhelming task – which sites to see first? Which museums to visit, which restaurants to try, which stores to shop at? But getting around in Amsterdam, fortunately, is easy and pleasant.
