About the country

This city has world-class museums, historical landmarks, a plethora of beautiful canals, and a thriving nightlife. It's a fantastic city, therefore it's no surprise that it's one of the most visited in the world


1.Amsterdam is the capital city of the Netherlands.

This city has world-class museums, historical landmarks, a plethora of beautiful canals, and a thriving nightlife. But if you go to the Netherlands, don't only go to Amsterdam and ignore the rest of the nation. Because if you do, you will only have seen our country's most visited city and a fraction of all it has to offer!

2. However, the Dutch have the hip city of Rotterdam.

Rotterdam is another interesting, lesser-known city in the Netherlands. This unique city is unlike Amsterdam and most other cities in the Netherlands. Rotterdam's architecture, in particular, is incredibly amazing and one-of-a-kind. You may question why Rotterdam is so distinct from the rest of the Netherlands. Rotterdam was bombed during WWII, and a substantial portion of the city center was entirely destroyed.

3. You may go sightseeing in attractive Dutch cities and villages.

Aside from the major cities, the Netherlands has numerous attractive towns and villages. When most people think of the Netherlands, they think of Amsterdam, but there is so much more! Volendam, Giethoorn, Goes, Middelburg, Zierikzee, Utrecht, and Alkmaar are only a few examples.Each village has its own distinct character, which is well worth exploring.

4.The Netherlands has islands as well

Did you know that the Netherlands has islands as well? The Waddeneilanden in the Netherlands are located in the North Sea. Texel, Vlieland, Terschelling, Ameland, and Schiermonnikoog are among the islands.

5. There is a rich Dutch history to be discovered.

The Netherlands has a long and illustrious history. Nijmegen is the oldest city in the Netherlands, dating back to the Roman era. The Dutch have been occupied by the Spanish, Austrians, French, and Germans over the years. The Dutch East India Company, often considered as the first real global organization, helped the Netherlands develop throughout its Golden Age.

6. But there is also a lot of contemporary architecture

There is a lot of contemporary architecture, especially in Rotterdam. Because the city was bombed during WWII, the residents had to rebuild it from the ground up. But they did build something unique.

7. Discover the incredible Dutch windmills.

Even though it's weird to me that some people assume all Dutch people wear clomps and live in windmills (which is completely false), it's still fun to visit some while you're in the Netherlands.

8.Take in the stunning Dutch scenery.

The Netherlands is astonishingly flat. Yes, there are some hills, but the majority of the nation is relatively flat. But it doesn't imply our nation doesn't have lovely scenery! For example, you may go to the Veluwe, an amazing nature area.

9.Smell the beautiful Dutch tulips.

You've probably seen a lot of photographs of the lovely Dutch tulip fields! Keukenhof in particular is well-known for its nearly 800 species of tulips, although there are many lesser-known blooms.

10.The party scene in the Netherlands is diverse.

if you enjoy partying, the Netherlands is the place to be. We have clubs featuring techno, house, hiphop, and so forth. There are exciting festivals and underground parties, but there are also nice old pubs for a drink and a conversation with friends.
