Funky little shop with great vibes and a fine selection of hash and grass. The afghan bud was sweetly memorable, and I enjoy hanging out here and letting the world go by. Recently redone, with beautiful glass lamps and decorations. Downstairs is a display of amazingly beautiful handblown glass pipes. The Rusland is on one of A'dam's quietest streets, but in a great location near the center of town.

Check out their excellent Nederhash and their wonderful selection of bulk teas. The Edelweiss is super!

I used to stay across the street at the SAS Radisson many, many times and the Rusland is the perfect place to start and finish the day. Usually the quietest times of the day so the service was always excellent. We now stay at the Crowne Plaza, more perks than the SAS and cheaper too, so we don't get to visit the Rusland but once a trip now. Highly worth finding it and spending some time there.

This shop is a great place to hang out. No alcohol, but a great selection of teas and very good music. Both the dealer and the guy making the tea were very friendly and although the bench seating is not that comfortable the overall feel of the shop is great. Most importantly, the White Russian was the best smoke I had all weekend. This shop will definitely be on my short list of favorites. Chris, sorry you couldn't make it, damn that Katrina.

Rusland is a nice, well run place with good staff and a (fairly) good menu. I would recommend the White Russian, but the Purple Haze was poor. If you like a selection of Tea and a quite spot to gather your thoughts - this place is definitely for you.

Really nice vibe and very friendly staff, music was pretty good too. Staff let me request some sounds, whilst we chilled and smoked our own gear. The coffee was great too!! A bit off the beaten track but worth finding.

Took a while to find this wee place but it was worth it , a very nice place to sit . The dealer let us have a good look mat the weed B4 we bought , we ended up buying a gram of shiva as the beaming colour and smell of it was sweet an citrusy. any way I noticed the Volcano Vaporiser on the bar lookin very lonely, so I asked about it at the bar and they were only to happy to fire it up. For anyone who hasn't tried it it takes about 5 mins to heat up and in those 5 mins. i was actually a bit nervous , but as i seen the clear plastic bag fill up with shiva i thought happy days . to cut a long story short I sat there Zinging for about an hour talkin shite with my girl as we indulged in a few rockets . Great Job !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Overall a nice place, the weeddealer was a little unfriendly at first, no idea why, but it got better, the waitress upstairs was very nice and helpful. Not crowded at all, had no probs finding a spot for myself.

The ony bio worth buying is the SILVER PEARL. The DUTCH Delight is not that delightful, but for price is nice. Super Polm is good, and The VOLCANO vaporizer is a must. Julian/Jules is COOL as can be, thanks. Do not ever buy the skunk mix or pre rolled joints, they are all thai. Nice bong selection. Met the craziest old hippy dude there that reminded my of albert enstein puffin on a fat one.

Quiet, relaxing and always cool friendly service. Great Super Polm. Don't like the new location for the counter as I used to like to sit there. This is the original and is still great.

Not being a cannabis smoker myself I was a bit wary about going into one of the famous amsterdam "Coffeeshops". But after being called a wuss by my husband in I went, to say I was surprised would be the understatement of the century. Everyone was so friendly and helpful and I felt really at ease. So there we sat my hubby and his cannabis and me and their fantastic cheescake. Fantastic place to go.....

I just recently visited glorious Amsterdam and found the Rusland was exactly what I was looking for. The bartenders at both bars inside where very knowledgable in their area of expertise- whether it be weed,hash, or one of their many teas selection. The choice of music that played was set at the perfect volume; ranging from the sweet sound of motown, to at times a very entrancing middleastern sound. Whether it's conversation you want, or to just simply roll one up and fall into the comfort of big pillows, and the comfort of being in one's own head, the Rusland will not dissapoint.

I arrived alone at amsterdam and the scene kinda shocked me. i didnt know where to go and the natives were trying to sell me junk. i got lost. it was a shitty welcome. i was looking for a nice coffesshop but they were all full of loud youngsters or old geezers. i finally found rosland and i was glad. the barkeep was really nice, the place was decorated beautifully, the skunk was very good and the music was excellent. im definetely coming back.
