A different perspective on the world
An episode from the series THROUGH YOUR EYES
Amsterdam and its canals have barely changed over the past 400 years. The city is as free today as it was in the past: in the 17th century, it was a refuge for Jews and Protestants persecuted for their religions. A pioneer in the construction of capitalism, Amsterdam has always been ahead of its time.
To understand the city's roots, Sophie goes back in time to the Dutch Golden Age.
