The Netherlands is a relatively small country located in North-West Europe. It is a constitutional monarchy with a population of about 17 million.
The Netherlands (also known as Holland) has a unique progressive and liberal culture and is known for its windmills, dikes, polders, tulips, bicycles, cheese and wooden clogs. Remarkable about the Netherlands is its flat landscape; 50% of the surface area is less than one meter above sea level and a complex system of polders and dikes prevent it from constant threat of flooding.
The Netherlands is also known for its artists (such as Van Gogh, Rembrandt and Mondriaan) as well as for its scientists (such as van Leeuwenhoek, inventor of the microscope, and the physicist Lorentz), and philosophers (such as Spinoza).
