Where is The Netherlands / Holland?

The Netherlands (Dutch: Nederland) is the European part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands that is formed by the Netherlands, the Netherlands Antilles and Aruba. (Dutch: Koninkrijk der Nederlanden ).

The Netherlands is located in north-western Europe. It borders the North Sea to the north and west, Belgium to the south, and Germany to the east.

In many countries, The Netherlands is often referred to as "Holland". This usage is technically incorrect, as "Holland" is actually a region in the central-western part of The Netherlands, divided into two provinces.

The Netherlands is one of the most densely populated and geographically low-lying countries in the world (its name literally means "Low-lands") and is famous for its dikes, windmills, wooden shoes, tulips, bicycles and social tolerance.

The country is host to the International Court of Justice; Amsterdam is the official capital as stated by the constitution, but The Hague ( Den Haag ) is the seat of government, the home of the monarch and the location for most foreign embassies.
