More information

MVA neighbourhood information: Transvaalbuurt

The Transvaalbuurt lies between the Transvaalkade, The Wibautstraat, The railroad Amsterdam, Muiderpoort and the Linnaeusstraat. There are few green facilities, but there are several initiatives from the inhibitants to create some more social gardens. Most buildings in this area are styled by the Amsterdam School, with special details. This neighbourhood is one of the areas which needed to be renewed and that is what happened. The extra effort made sure that the quality of living in this area is increased.

Amsterdam is the largest Dutch city, the capital of the Netherlands, and the nation's financial, business, cultural and commercial capital as well. Since its founding in the 12th century, Amsterdam has evolved from a small fishing village into one of the most important ports in the world during the Dutch Golden Age. Museums like the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh and the Stedelijk also give Amsterdam serious cultural credibility. Amsterdam's compact size, cycling lifestyle, diverse population (more than 170 nationalities), English-speaking natives, abundance of green space, reliable public transportation system and central location within Europe mean it's not only a great place to visit, but also a great place to live.
