The Kingdom of the Netherlands is a land of tulips. The Netherlands is located in Western Europe, washed by the waters of the North Sea. The country consists of 12 provinces and dozens of islands, it is one of the most populous countries in Europe. Here is the largest port in Europe – Rotterdam. The Netherlands is a country of lowlands, most of its territories are below sea level, and therefore the local residents for centuries had to conquer their own land from the sea element.
The Netherlands is a country of windmills, traditional wooden shoes, amazing bridges and architectural structures. It is the birthplace of Dutch cheese and tulip – the main flower, decoration and pride of the country.
