Red-light district of Amsterdam

Not much is left to the imagination in the city’s red-light district. To be fair, everything you might have heard is probably true, but experiencing it in person is something different altogether. This notorious district, also called ‘De Walletjes’, happens to be one of the city’s oldest and most beautiful areas, with narrow cobblestone streets and 14th century architecture.
