About Netherlands

The Netherlands, a country in northwestern Europe, is known for a flat landscape of canals, tulip fields, windmills and cycling routes. Amsterdam, the capital, is home to the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and the house where Jewish diarist Anne Frank hid during WWII. Canalside mansions and a trove of works from artists including Rembrandt and Vermeer remain from the city's 17th-century.

Geography and climate of the Netherlands

Location: North Western Europe, West and North-West coastline the North Sea, borders with Belgium from the South and Germany from the East and Northeast.

Geographic coordinates: 52 30 N, 5 45 E

Seacoast: 451 km, territorial waters: 12 nautical miles, exclusive fishing zone: 200 nm.

Land borders: 1,027 km; borders with Belgium - 450 km long, with Germany - 577 km long.

Area of the Netherlands: 41,526 sq km. A large part of the Netherlands is covered with water: 7,643 sq km, land: 33,883 sq km.

Main rivers: Maas, Rhine

Biggest lake: Ijsselmeer (artificial lake created as a result of closing of a Zuidermeer bay).

Biggest Island: Texel ( Frisian Islands).

Highest point: Vaalserberg 321 m. The highest point in the whole Kingdom is overseas: Mount Scenery (862 m) on the small island of Saba, Netherlands Antilles.

Lowest point: Zuidplaspolder -6,7 m below NAP (Normal Amsterdam Level - the accepted constant sea level).

Landscape: Mostly coastal lowland and the land reclaimed from sea (polders); low and flat; about half of the surface of the Netherlands is less than 1 m above sea level, and large parts of it (ca 24%) are actually below sea level.
Some hills are only in southeast of the country.

Maritime climate: The Netherlands has a mild, maritime climate, similar to England; summers are generally warm with colder, rainy periods, and excessively hot weather is rare, but last years happens more and more often. Winters can be fairly cold, windy, with rain and some snow. The possibility of extreme cold is rare. Rain occurs throughout the whole year, spring being the driest season.

Natural disasters: Sea storms and floods.
Historically storms and floods were a periodical natural disaster in the Netherlands. Worst of them in the years 1287, 1421, and 1953 - with many human victims, are still remembered. Today an impressive system of dikes (only so called secondary dikes are 13 000 km long) and huge pumping stations protect the Netherlands from flooding.

Netherlands, country located in northwestern Europe, also known as Holland. “Netherlands” means low-lying country; the name Holland (from Houtland, or “Wooded Land”) was originally given to one of the medieval cores of what later became the modern state and is still used for 2 of its 12 provinces (Noord-Holland and Zuid-Holland). A parliamentary democracy under a constitutional monarch, the kingdom includes its former colonies in the Lesser Antilles: Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao, Saba, Sint Eustatius, and Sint Maarten. The capital is Amsterdam and the seat of government The Hague.

The country is indeed low-lying and remarkably flat, with large expanses of lakes, rivers, and canals. Some 2,500 square miles (6,500 square km) of the Netherlands consist of reclaimed land, the result of a process of careful water management dating back to medieval times. Along the coasts, land was reclaimed from the sea, and, in the interior, lakes and marshes were drained, especially alongside the many rivers. All this new land was turned into polders, usually surrounded by dikes. Initially, man power and horsepower were used to drain the land, but they were later replaced by windmills, such as the mill network at Kinderdijk-Elshout, now a UNESCO World Heritage site. The largest water-control schemes were carried out in the second half of the 19th century and in the 20th century, when steam pumps and, later, electric or diesel pumps came into use.

Despite government-encouraged emigration after World War II, which prompted some 500,000 persons to leave the country, the Netherlands is today one of the world’s most densely populated countries. Although the population as a whole is “graying” rapidly, with a high percentage over age 65, Amsterdam has remained one of the liveliest centres of international youth culture. There, perhaps more than anywhere else in the country, the Dutch tradition of social tolerance is readily encountered. Prostitution, “soft-drug” (marijuana and hashish) use, and euthanasia are all legal but carefully regulated in the Netherlands, which was also the first country to legalize same-sex marriage.
