Netherlands

For the love of freedom, individualism, and stroopwafels.

Netherlands is a country located in northwestern Europe. It is bordered by the North Sea to the north and west, Belgium to the south, and Germany to the east. Netherlands is often referred to by the name Holland. This is not strictly correct as North and South Holland are only two of the twelve provinces which make up the Netherlands. However, the name Holland is commonly used when referring to the Netherlands as a whole.

The Netherlands is a very diverse and tolerant country. It is home to people from all over the world, and has a long history of tolerance and social cohesion. The Dutch are known for their love of freedom and individualism.

The Netherlands is a popular tourist destination for its many beautiful and historic cities, its stunning countryside, and its lively culture. Amsterdam is the most popular tourist destination, with its canals, museums, and nightlife. Other popular destinations include Rotterdam, Utrecht, and The Hague.

The Dutch cuisine offers popular dishes such as stamppot (a mashed potato dish), erwtensoep (a thick pea soup), and stroopwafels (syrup waffles).
