Amsterdam is the capital of the Kingdom of the Netherlands with a population of 840,486 people from more than 180 different nationalities. Originating as a small fishing village in the late 12th century, Amsterdam became one of the most important ports in the world during the Dutch Golden Age (17th century), a result of its innovative developments in trade. The 17th-century canals of Amsterdam and the 19–20th century defense line of Amsterdam are on the UNESCO World Heritage list.
