13/26.- Amsterdam, Spui and around


After De Jaren, follow the Oude Turfmarkt on the east side of the Amstel. Pass next to the Allard Pierson Museum, run by the University of Amsterdam, which presents a rich archeological collection and sometimes small but very interesting exhibitions. Then take the first bridge left. You will walk next to the famous shopping area, the Kalverstraat, and arrive to Spui. This is a very nice square where you can find lots of books, either at the American Book Centre or at the Atheneum Boekhandel, in the latter you can find academic books in all fields and books in many languages including French, German, English and even Turkish! Their newsstand next door is perfect! The Historical Museum of Amsterdam is also in this area.
