With only 900.000 inhabitants Amsterdam is a relatively small capital city. So much so that people may live under the wrong impression that after a short visit they have seen it all. However, there’s still a neighborhood in city center, De Jordaan, which remains undiscovered, a place where locals still live and go about their everyday business, where they eat and drink, where they laugh and dance and even where they occasionally go to church.
