The province that houses the largest city and capital of Netherlands- Amsterdam.
Hortus Botanicus is a botanical garden in the Plantage district of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. It is one of the world's oldest botanical gardens. The garden's initial collection was amassed during the 17th century through plants and seeds brought back by traders from the Dutch East India Company for use as medicines and potential commercial possibilities. A single coffee plant in Hortus's collection served as the parent for the entire coffee culture in Central and South America.
Oosterpark has been the first big public park created by the municipality in Amsterdam. It has been designed in 1891 by Leonard Antonij Springer. The whole family can find fun in this park. While the older members can enjoy the meaning behind the monuments and the serene walking paths throughout the area, young kids can also have fun playing and running around the wide open meadows.
