It is a part of the municipality of Amsterdam, and lies about 6 km west of the city centre.[1] Sloten was a separate municipality until 1921. Since then, Sloten(founded in the year 990) became the oldest part of Amsterdam (founded in 1254).[2]

During the 1928 Summer Olympics, it hosted the rowing events.[3] Now it is best known for the working windmill, transformed into the Rembrandt Sloten Windmill/Coopery Museum.[4]
