Here is Holland
ISBN 978-9059721418 - 492 pages



Welcome to the Netherlands, a tiny country that extends, at its broadest, 312 kms (194 miles) north to south, and 264 kms (164 miles) east to west – although the land area increases slightly each year as a result of continuous land reclamation and drainage.
With a lot of heart and much to offer, “Holland”, as it is commonly known to all but the Dutch – a name that stems from its once most prominent provinces - has more going on per kilometer than most countries and, more English- speaking natives. You’ll be impressed by its historic cities and charmed by the contrasts of its countryside and villages. Its roads and public transportation are excellent.
