Netherlands facts and history in brief

The Netherlands

Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia.

The Netherlands (Nederland in Dutch) is the European part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, a constitutional monarchy.
It is located in north-western Europe and borders the North Sea, Belgium and Germany.
The Netherlands is one of the most densely populated and geographically low-lying countries in the world and is famous for its dikes, windmills, and perceived social tolerance.
This country is also host to the International Court of Justice and is often - technically incorrectly - referred to by the collective name of its two main provinces: Holland (North and South Holland).
Amsterdam is the official capital (as the constitution states).
The Hague is the administrative capital (the seat of government), the home of the Queen, and the location for most of the embassies.
