The Jordaan

The Jordaan is perhaps the nicest neighborhood in Amsterdam. The district was built in 1612 as a working-class district for ordinary workers and their families. After a thorough renovation in the second half of the twentieth century, the Jordaan is now a melting pot of original Jordanians, students, artists and yuppies. In the narrow streets you will find a colorful collection of nice (antique) shops, bars and grocers that are worth exploring. Many Dutch folk musicians come from the Jordaan. One of the best known is Johnny Jordaan, after whom a square on the Prinsengracht is named. The square features statues of various musicians from the Jordaan area.
