Intro to the Pictures of the Netherlands Page

The Netherlands (or Holland as it is also called) is a very diverse country. Nearly sixteen million people are living in a country that fits five times in the American state of Utah alone, making the Netherlands one of the most densely populated countries in the world. So what does this mean? Is Holland just one huge city? Concrete everywhere, no nature left?

Of course not. There's much more to Holland than that! The proof's right here, on this Pictures of the Netherlands site. Here, you can find several dozen selected pictures that give a good view of what the Netherlands looks like today. First off, there's Holland's most famous city: the capital of Amsterdam. With 800,000 inhabitants this is the country's largest city. But let's not forget Rotterdam, which boasts 500,000 inhabitants and the largest seaport in the world. In Rotterdam's port even the largest ships in the world can dock!

But there's much more to the Netherlands besides these two cities in the west of the country. The north and east of the country do not have cities of the size of Amsterdam or Rotterdam, but they offer the charm of smaller, more provincial cities. Examples are Arnhem, Nijmegen, Eindhoven, Groningen, to name but a few.

Take a look around this site and see for yourself what a beautiful country the Netherlands is. Take some time, click on the thumbnails, and let those pictures load. And if you want, feel free to bookmark this site too, so you can come back whenever you want for your pictures of the Netherlands. What do you say, is Holland anything like you thought it was?
