The Netherlands, also is known as Holland, is a country in Western Europe. The Netherlands borders Germany to the east, Belgium to the south, and the North Sea to the northwest, sharing maritime borders with Belgium, the United Kingdom, and Germany. “Netherlands” literally means “lower countries”, with only about 50% of its land exceeding one meter above sea level.

The five largest cities in the Netherlands are Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Utrecht, and Eindhoven. Amsterdam is the country’s capital, while The Hague holds the Dutch seat of parliament and government.
