Travelling: In Amsterdam

Last week I spent a lovely weekend in fantastic Amsterdam. It's difficult to describe in only few words how beautiful the city is and how unique and fascinating the atmosphere of Amsterdam is. I wrote once the whole post dedicated to it all. You can find it here. In this post I follow the rule that one picture is worth more than hundred words and show you some shots made during my quick visit. Enjoy!
PS. I used to live in Amsterdam --> I know it pretty good. If you need any advice, feel free to ask.

На прошлой неделе я провела два неповторимых дня в Амстердаме, который опять-таки подтвердил свою уникальность. Все выходные я наслаждалась красотой города и ни на что непохожей атмосферой города. Сложно передать ощущения, вызванные Амстердамом, в нескольких строчках. Я попыталась это сделать в этом посте. Здесь же я, согласно высказыванию: лучше один раз увидеть, чем сто раз услышать, покажу вам несколько снимков, сделанных за  два дня, проведенных в голландской столице.  Наслаждайтесь!
PS. несколько лет назад я жила в Амстердаме, так что я знаю город достаточно хорошо. Если вы собираетесь туда и вам нужен какой-то совет, обращайтесь.

I'm wearing: top & denim 7 for all mankind, jacket TopShop, wedgies Manfield, bag Furla, brooch Patrizia Pepe, sunnies D&G, hat Bijenkorf

Arm-party: Tiffany & Co, Pandora, Frey Wille, Omega, vintage bracelets bought in Paris and in Rotterdam

Famous grachten - canals of Amsterdam. They are the core, the veins of the city. 
Not less famous (or shall I say notorious) bikes.

Амстердамские grachten - каналы, они есть суть, пульсирующие вены города.
Знаменитые велосипеды, "заполонившие" весь город.

Beautiful sunflowers mark in the city the arrival of August and with it the first signs of autumn. 

Прекрасные подсолнухи ознаменовывают приход августа в город.

Art to be found overall in the city: on the streets, in the restaurants, in its people.

Искусство повсюду в Амстердаме: на улицах, в ресторанах, в людях.
