Amsterdam was established at the Amstel, which was dammed to prevent flooding. The Amstel dam is the source of the city's name. [14] Amsterdam was founded as a small fishing community in the 12th century. During the Dutch Golden Age, 17th-century Dutch, Amsterdam was one of the most important ports around the globe and was the centre of finance and trade. [15] The city grew and new suburbs and neighborhoods were built in the 19th and 20th century. The UNESCO World Heritage List includes the 17-century Amsterdam canals and the 19-20th-century Defence Line of Amsterdam. Sloten, which was annexed by the municipality in 1921, is the oldest area of the city. It dates back to the 9th Century.
