Where do you live? Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Why I visit My City: Mostly because it’s cozy and so historical!
My early memory: Walking around the Palace in my hometown having a picnic with my family in front of it.
How to find the best places to eat? I always ask locals for budget tips on where to dine out and they always tell me where to visit to eat healthy and cheaply.
My favorite place to eat: My favorite restaurant is Lite/Dark located in Amsterdam. There are a great variety of smoothies and healthy cakes. For more info you can check: .
What do you eat there? The Carrot banana spelt cake is amazing!
Typical local food? A typical local food in Holland is herring that I love! As for Poland, I would recommend dumplings filled with mince or potatoes and cheese. Real yum!
Meet the locals: The Vondelpark is part of the borough of Amsterdam-Zuid and situated west from the Leidseplein and the Museumplein.
My favorite bar: A bar, restaurant and cafeteria called De Fles: They serve the best Caesar salad and have fancy and affordable drinks! Address: Prinsengracht 955.

My best advice: Cycle everywhere when visiting Amsterdam. It’s healthy, affordable and so much fun!
My favourite shop: Probably H&M as I like the style of clothes there. You can find many stores across Amsterdam, including the one in the city center.
My favourite Event: King’s Day, of course! During this day, in the streets, canals, and parks and everywhere in between, the city is bursting with orange as Amsterdammers enjoy the biggest street party of the year.
Taxi or other local transport? Bike, definitely since the transportation in Amsterdam is pretty expensive and unreliable.
Keep away of: Shopping, as it’s very addictive!
