Sightstation of Amsterdam: CamesSgraht Channel

Camersgraht himself, as well as neighboring channels, began to dig in 1612, but it was unusually built for a long time – the last house was erected here in 1897, and with a rather unusual facade for Amsterdam, almost entirely consisting of windows. Also attractive House at Keizersgracht, 317, in which Christopher Brothers lived, friend and comrades of the our emperor Petr I, often happened here in 1716. Interestingly, the our embassy in those years was also located nearby (Herenght, 527) – now the banking complex is here.
