Holland is located in Northwest Europe, to its north and west it borders on the North Sea, to its south is Belgium, and to its east is Germany. Although considered a parliamentary democracy, it is actually a part of a monarchy, and in 2013 the new King Willem-Alexander was crowned after inheriting the throne from his mother, Queen Beatrix. Holland is one of the smallest of the European states, one of the most densely populated, and is considered among the most advanced countries in the world in terms of government, transparency, economy, civil rights and other issues that enable it to provide an excellent standard of living. Its history is closely interlinked with that of Europe, it is one of the EU’s founding member states, and it is also a member in NATO, the OECD and the WTO.
Holland is characterized by low flat ground and its entire surface is very close to sea level, making it a country of classic European plains, green hills and picturesque towns alongside large and developed urban centers. Despite the fact that Amsterdam is usually the city most associated with Holland, its actual capital is Hague. Its population is 17 million, the official language is Dutch, but the vast majority of natives speak excellent English, making it that much easier to register there.For Viewing Holland in Google Maps - Click Here
