Netherland Lang en

The Netherlands is a monarchy with a parliamentary system based on constitution. It is a part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. It includes the Netherlands and six islands in the Caribbean Sea.

Aruba and five other islands comprises the Netherlands Antilles. (Curacao and Bonaire are on the coast of Venezuela and Saba, St. Eustatius and St. Martin are located in the southeast of America Virgin Islands. These five islands are supposed to change into an independent political entity dominated by the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Therefore, Netherlands Antilles will be dissolved.

The Netherlands in its entirety is often referred to by the much older designation "Holland" , though this refers only toNorth and South Holland. They have a major role in the history of the country. It has been located in the North Sea , Belgium, and Germany.

Amsterdam is the country's capital.It has a population of about750000it is the largest and most important city in the Netherlands. The Hague holds the Dutch seatof government and parliament. The Netherlands is divided into 12 province. Some of the cities are as follows: AssenArnhemHaarlem, North HollandSouth Holland,MaastrichtMiddelburg,LeeuwardenLelystadZwolle,Hague, Utrecht,Flevoland, Limburg, North Brabant, Zeeland, Groningen, Friesland, Drenthe, Gelderland, 's-Hertogenbosch.


Amsterdam, Hague, Rotterdam and Utrecht belong to a large central unit called Randstad. ( with a population of around 10 million people/ Two-thirds of the Dutch population). It is one of the largest metropolitan areas in Europe. The main part of population isn’t in four major cities (due to density). It is because of being small and big towns and cities in that area. Urbanization is not a new phenomenon in the Netherlands. Since 1500, half of the Dutch population have lived in cities. Despite vicinity, each city has its own feature.

Amsterdam is considered the Venice of Northern Europe thanks to its historic centers, majestic buildings, museums and unique system of water channels network. So it is highly regarded by tourists. The Hague, Delft, Haarlem, Utrecht, Groningen and Maastricht are also famous for historic places, museums, traditions and attractions. Rotterdam is famous for its remarkable modern architecture.

The Location of Gateway

The Rhine and Copper in the provinces of North and South Holland, due to two major European terminals, play an important role in the economy. Rotterdam is the largest seaport and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is one of the largest airports in Europe.

Sea fight

The soil surface of Netherlands is very low. 27 Percent of the Netherlands and sixty60 percent of its population are below sea level. The Netherlands is very flat ground apart from some limited areas in central and south-eastern slopes of the Ardennes. Certain areas of the territory of the Netherlands has developed a system of revived ponds. So it leads to dryness. Ponds are flat land. Ban dabs are connected to them in order to control water surface artificially. Since the 16th century, windmills have been used not only to keep the land dry but also to drain the water into inland lakes.

The unique appearance of the Netherlands consists of several bridges, ban dabs, windmills and unloading stations. harness water in the Delta Project was the turning point in the Netherlands. These dams set to keep safe the two provinces of Zeeland and South Holland from the North Sea. This project began after the disastrous flood of 1953. In 1997, it ended with the completion barrier against water surge caused by the storm at the new floodway. This dam has two adjustable massive gates in order to control 360 meters of water. It leads to immune the population of one million in Rotterdam from risk of flood.

Although the current society is largely secular. There are some traces of an old systems in the media and the educational system. Dutch society is egalitarian, individualistic and modern. Hard work, education, ambition and ability are worthwhile for them.

To make allowance for international interests.

The Netherlands has become a member of a large number of international organizations, most prominently the OECD, NATO and the EU. The States General, the confederal government, were seated in The Hague and consisted of representatives from each of the seven provinces. The Hague is home to over 80 international organizations. Generally, it is active in the field of peace, justice and security. Netherlands hosts five international courts. All of which them are located in the city or around The Hague. The Hague's city council employs a city branding strategy that aims to establish The Hague as the Legal Capital of the World and the International City of Peace and Justice.
