As a recent visitor of Amsterdam, I created a short presentation of the city and I am willing to give you some advice to enjoy your trip.
In Assendelft, the Netherlands, a group of Muslims wants to build a mosque. This fact generates friction between the residents and the organisation that wants to build it. Locals are alarmed by possible nuisance, inadequate funding, depreciation of their houses and a lot more. They are scared by Islamic extremism and don’t want anything to do with this house of prayer. Potential mosque in Assendelft is not the only one causing problems and disagreement in the country. In ten municipalities the construction of these buildings encounters opposition by local residents. Why are the Dutch so afraid?
Dutch people are leading the way, when it comes to foreign languages.
The Netherlands is considered a very hip and cool country.
