Amsterdam is one of the most visited capital in Europe, very famous for the canals, cannabis bar, and museum, what a strange combination, right?

Utrecht is a city often overshadowed by Amsterdam and most of the time we identify it thanks to the famous treaty signed by Spain and the Netherlands to end the war between the two countries. I was greeted by a charming city with bucolic canals, a beautiful old town, a university atmosphere, and historic buildings. It is also a much less touristy and more relaxed city than Amsterdam.
