Wildcard

The Damrak The Damrak is a bustling thoroughfare that runs through the center of Amsterdam, from the central railway station to Dam Square. The street is lined with souvenir shops, hotels, restaurants, and bars. The Damarak was originally a canal, but it was filled in with concrete in the 19th century. The body of water at the stock exchange is all that remains of the original harbor.
