    Netherlands is a very picturesque country, dotted with windmills, little churches and grassy dunes. Thanks to the enormous colonial influent in the seventeenth century, the Netherlands enjoyed a "Golden Age" of prosperity. And nowadays, being one of the most developed countries in the world, Netherlands is also the most populous European country (sixteen million inhabitants are concentrated into an area about the size of southern England). Do you know that around half of Netherlands lies at or below sea level? We hope you enjoy Netherlands

    When To Go

    Hordes of tourists snap their way around the Netherlands in summer, but this is still the best time of year to sit picnicking by the canals. August is a great month for all sorts of events. Spring is a good time to visit for daffodils and tulips. Easter is busy in Amsterdam, but if you can visit during Koninginnedag it's worth fighting the crowds. Early October with its Indian summer can be an excellent time to come. In winter the museums are quiet, and if everything freezes over, there's great ice skating on the canals and flood plains. The Dutch aren't bogged in their clich├ęs, even though bikes, dykes, windmills and blazing flower fields are pretty much the norm outside the major cities. Do as the locals do - grab a bike and explore. It's a very big small country, and full of salutary surprises.

    One of the chief pleasures of the place is its lively contrast between pragmatic liberalism and the buttoned-up just-so primness of a culture founded on Calvinist principles. In Dutch society, ostentation is anathema and fuss of any kind is regarded as undignified.

    Netherlands Environment

    As a low-lying country the Netherlands has waged a long struggle against the sea. Hydraulic engineering has played a huge part in protection against flooding and reclamation of land.
    Over forty-five regions are listed by Ramsar as Wetlands of International Importance. De Biesbosch, Weerribben and Waddenzee are also National Parks
    Wadden Sea (Waddenzee), an area of coastal wetlands and dune systems, is also a UNESCO MAB Biosphere Reserve.

    The wetlands are the habitat of many species of birds such as Bewick's Swan, Great Cormorant, Grey Plover, Redshank and Spoonbill.


    The Kingdom of the Netherlands

    is in Western Europe, bordered by the North Sea, Belgium and Germany. The West Frisian Islands, off the coast of North Holland, and the islands of the Dutch Antilles, in the Caribbean, are part of the Kingdom.
    The Netherlands is divided into twelve provinces: Drenthe, Flevoland, Friesland, Gelderland, Groningen, Limburg, Noord-Brabant, Noord-Holland, Overijssel, Utrecht, Zeeland and Zuid-Holland.

    Amsterdam is the capital city and an important port; the government of the Netherlands is situated in The Hague. Rotterdam is a major city and one of the world's leading ports.

    Most of the country is low-lying with half of the Netherlands below sea level. Dikes (dams) have been built along the coast and the land drained. In the north the former Zuider Zee, separated from the North Sea by an eighteen mile long dike, forms a lake called the IJsselmeer. Rivers include the Rhine (Waal and Lek) and the Maas or Meuse.
    The climate is temperate with cool summers and mild winters.

    Netherlands Architecture

    Over ten thousand buildings in the Netherlands are on the preservation register. In Noord-Holland traditional wooden houses can be seen in the eel-fishing village of Volendam and the green and white painted houses in Marken.

    By the seventeenth century Amsterdam was Europe's wealthiest trading city. Amsterdam's golden era saw the development of town planning in the capital. Houses were built along the rings of city canals, the wealthiest merchants living in the city centre. Houses were narrow and high as there was a tax on the width of the buildings. Stepped gables were popular. Expensive spices and goods were kept on the top floors of merchants' houses and hoists with pulley and tackle were used to move goods through the windows.

    A recent development in the Netherlands is the construction of wooden and aluminium floating houses. The buildings are constructed on concrete pontoons and anchored to land. As half on the country's land is below sea-level, with some areas prone to flooding, this may provide a solution to the provision of living space.

    Netherlands Food


    Dairy products play an important part in Dutch cooking. Milk, butter and cheese are consumed in large quantities together with eggs, sausages and ham. These are accompanied by a variety of breads.

    Popular dishes are Dutch pea soup, meatballs, raw herring, smoked eel, and chips with mayonnaise. The Netherlands' colonial past is reflected in the availability of Indonesian food.

    Desserts include pancakes and apple pie, both served with cream. Pastries are readily available in the shops together with chocolates and Dutch liquorice.
