The Blauwbrug (“blue bridge”) is an historic bridge that connects the Rembrandtplein area with the Waterlooplein area. The bridge was named after a wooden bridge painted in the color blue that was there around 1600. It was replaced in 1883 with the current bridge which was inspired by the architecture of the bridges over the Seine in Paris. Photo Fotima / J. G. van Agtmaal. #amsterdam #1947…
