The Netherlands is the official name for the country that most of us know as Holland. Whichever name you choose to use, it will always be a beautiful country known for its flat landscapes, canals, tulip fields, windmills and cycling routes. Small it may be, but Holland is chock-a-block with wonderful attractions and places of interest.
Delight in the colourful tulip bulb fields, magnificent windmills, cheese markets, the array of wooden shoes (clogs), long winding canals, the Delft Blue earthenware on sale, museums, and of course, the thousands of bicycles on the road. Holland also has a number of National Parks, popular with hikers, birdwatchers and nature lovers for their flora and fauna.
