Instagram is undoubtedly one of the most used applications on my phone. For me, it is not just a source of inspiration of lifestyle, fashion, and beauty, but also a place where I can discover magical places in Amsterdam. From restaurants and cafés to museum and parks, little streets, bookstores, and even more. I can not get enough! Two years ago, I finally decided to move to Amsterdam. Although I have seen so much of the city, it is still just a fraction of what the city has to offer. There are still many places I would like to visit. The next one on my list is the photography museum FOAM on the Keizersgracht. Before I let you all see my top five favorite Instagram accounts, I would like to share some remarkable facts about Amsterdam to you.
