Holland-Amsterdam

Overview, Traditions & History

Holland was once a major colonial power, and challenged the English for naval supremacy. Throughout the Golden Age of the 17th century, its standard of living was the best in the world and to this day Holland remains one of the most developed countries in the world, regularly finishing highly in the OECD better life index.

Holland is a famously liberal and cosmopolitan country, with inhabitants from all over the world, especially in the capital Amsterdam. Holland is a constitutional monarchy - King Willem-Alexander presides over the government in name only, and the royal palace is still available to see in the centre of Amsterdam.
