    The Royal Palace stands at the heart of central Amsterdam, heading up Dam Square and standing ominously in the background of Dam Square Monument. The Queen's procession culminates here every National Memorial Day, and it provides the backdrop for political protests, demonstrations, and carnivals.

    This is a amazing building. build by Hendrik de Keyzer as the city hall of Amterdam. It is one of the first ''civilian" building in Europe of this size. Amsterdam was a republic in that times, governed by regentes, the most influential entrepeneurs and protestants of the city. Inside it is beautiful decorated by Dutch aritst of the 17th century. it is one of my favorites as I was a politician myself I love this history of civil spirit and entrepeurial ethics.

    The Royal Palace of Amersterdam was constructed in the mid-seventeenth century. It was originally designed to serve the people of Amsterdam as their Town Hall. It was only years later that it became a royal residence.

    Situated in the middle of Amsterdam where tourists go and enjoy the architectures of buildings around. I find this structure one of the nicest if not the best in Amsterdam. Full of history and story to tell about this Palace.

    I'm always amazed at the old buildings and architecture in Amsterdam, and visiting palaces are a favorite of mine.

    Within a five minute walk form Hotel Pulitzer, you will be at the Dam where you can admire the beautiful Royal Palace. The Palace was originally designed as town hall but around 1808 became the 3rd palace of the Napoleonic Empire.

    If you haven't seen the Royal Palace, you must go back to Amsterdam, because it's in front of Dam Square. A huge structure and building which has been (I don't know if it's still on) construction (reform). On it's front there is usually a fair over the April Month (weeks before the queens day)
