Here you'll be offered Fat Pappy, weed by weight and also space cakes - at first sight it is a usual chocolate or vanilla flavored muffin, but surprise is inside, they are stuffed with marihuana. And what is more, they are legal.

How to do?

1. Most unusual coffee shops are located in Red Light District. Identifying sign is hemp leaf on the door.

There is a turnstile where you age and sanity are checked. Go to glass stand and ask for a space cake. The instruction, attached to the cake, advises first to eat a half of a cake and wait for an hour :-)

2. Keep calm! You won't jump from a bridge and won't see three-headed snake - you'll just get a good mood. And the main thing - don't eat more than one cake in a row

On the streets of Amsterdam bicycle riders are the main characters. Cars and pedestrians always give way to bikers, but they don't!
