The Netherlands is often called Holland. But Holland is not the correct name. Holland are 2 provinces. “Noord Holland and Zuid-Holland “in the Netherlands. However, the name Holland is often used when all of the Netherlands is meant.
The Netherlands is well known for bikes, windmills, cheese, canals, tulips, wooden shoes, trains, freight ships and Dutch masters.
Bikes. I think as soon as a child can walk they can ride a bike. Bike lanes are everywhere. As the country is small it is often faster to go on the bike as with the car.
Trains. There is a dense railway network which connects nearly all towns and cities. It primarily supports passenger transport. It is very easy to use and the trains go often. So you never need to wait long when you miss one
Cheese. The Netherlands is the world’s largest exporter of cheese. The Dutch eat a lot of cheese. And there are a lot of different kind of cheeses.
Tulips. Originally from Turkey and they were imported in the sixteenth century in the Netherlands and became very popular flower in the Netherlands.
Food out the wall. You put money in, open one of the windows and pull out your pick warm or cold snack
Dutch Masters. One of perhaps the greatest and most famous portrait painter was Rembrandt van Rijn. The picture in my blog is the statue on Rembrandt plein (Rembrandt square) in central Amsterdam.
