Venice of the North

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The following is an incomplete list of settlements nicknamed Venice of the North. The term Venice of the North refers to various cities in Northern Europe that contain canals, comparing them to Venice, Italy, which is renowned for its canals (see Grand Canal). Some of these nicknames (e.g. in the case of Amsterdam) date back centuries, while others like Birmingham are very recently given and invented by the cities' own.
