Amsterdam-Oost, or Eastern Amsterdam, is a large, mainly residential neighborhood. The area has several nice parks, including the elegant late-19th-century Oosterpark just behind the Tropenmuseum, which has emerged from its 2014–15 renovation bigger and better than ever, with improved drainage, new playgrounds and fountains, and better views of the stunning surrounding architecture. Oost is also home to many excellent cafés and restaurants. Historic buildings, local nightlife, and a friendly neighborhood vibe make this an appealing and affordable base.
