With so much water in Amsterdam, it's no wonder there are more than 1,200 bridges in the greater city limits. My photo gallery of Amsterdam bridges
offers a sampling of the many different kinds of bridges that criss-cross this floating city, from historic over-water footpaths to classic "humpbacked" canal varieties. By day and by night, Amsterdam's bridges are some of its most defining features -- not to mention its most picturesque.
