Willemstad, the capital city of Curaçao, is famous for its colourful houses in the city centre and the waterways – St Anna Bay canal divides the city in two, opening into a large natural water area, named Schottegat, which comprises the harbour. Queen Emma Bridge, a floating pontoon bridge, known as "The Swinging Old Lady" is an important landmark in Willemstad, and Queen Juliana Bridge, is the highest bridge in the Caribbean. Other tourist attractions include the floating market, with fresh fruits and other products brought by boat from Venezuela, Fort Amsterdam, Rif Fort (a fortress and a shopping centre), Museum Kura Hulanda, Curacao Maritime Museum and the Dolphin Academy where swimming with the dolphins is possible!
In the city centre, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you will find exceptional architecture of the European colonial presence, following Dutch styles combined with other influences. This lively, modern city offers great food in the bars and restaurants and is popular for shopping - after the beach or water sports! Are you curious about this city?
