The Netherlands

The Netherlands is a country in Northwestern Europe. It has a territory of 16,040 square miles, which consists of a continental part in Europe and three islands in the Caribbean. Its population is over 17 million people. The name “Netherlands” literally means “the lower lands” and comes from its geographical location. Most of the Dutch lands are barely one meter above sea level, and a significant part of them has been reclaimed from lakes and the North Sea. The Netherlands is known for its flat landscapes and abundance of water canals.

The first human activity in the Dutch lands dates back to the Neanderthals - 250,000 years ago. The history of the Netherlands has been heavily shaped by Celtic, Germanic and Roman tribes.
