FAQs on Netherlands

What is the currency of Netherlands?

Euros are the only acceptable currency in the Netherlands. It is important to remember that a lot of shops do not accept banknotes of Û100, Û200 and Û500, due to counterfeiting and burglary threats. 1 or 2 cent coins are also not given as change, and the price of shopping is rounded up or down. American Express cards are widely used in the Netherlands, but Amex is not as widely accepted as Visa or Mastercard. The locals often use local bank cards which mean even small shops and market stands usually have a machine. In tourist spots, as well as in larger shops and restaurants, cards are readily accepted, but it is always better to ask in advance.

What is the history of Netherlands?

From 1555 to 1581, the Dutch were ruled by the Spanish. In 1588, the Republic of the Seven United Netherlands was formed. During the 17th century, the Netherlands declared a 12-yearÊtruce with Spain and became a prosperous trading nation, founding a colony in South Africa in 1652. However, due to increasing trade rivalry, the Netherlands had to fight three consecutive wars with England. Finally, William of Orange, ruler of the Netherlands made peace with England by marrying the princess. Therefore, in the late 17th century, science,Êart, and philosophy finally flourished in the country. However, in the 18th century, the political and economic power of the country started declining. The Dutch were again involved in the War of the Spanish Succession against the French, and were hence exhausted all the resources. The French successfully invaded the Netherlands; however, with Napoleon's defeat and William of Orange's return, the country once again came under his rule. After his death, his son took over and introduced a new liberal constitution. For the rest of the 19th century, the Netherlands remained prosperous and stable and industrial growth took place. In the 20th century, while the Netherlands remained neutral during WW-I, it suffered through the Great Depression in the 1930s. Further, it was invaded by Germany in WW-II, and the people suffered terribly with frequent bombings and deportations. With the end of the war, NetherlandsÊslowly recovered and became a founding member of the EU in 1957.

How is Netherlands divided into regions?

Eastern Netherlands is home to numerous hotspots including Hoge Veluwe National Park - the largest national park in the Netherlands and the beautiful Hanzesteden cities i.e. seven medieval cities along the IJssel River with a historic centre. Western Netherlands: referred to as the Randstad, this region, comprising of the four biggest cities of Netherlands (Flevoland, North Holland, South Holland, Utrecht), as well as typical Dutch countryside, is also called the heart of the country. Northern Netherlands: This hidden gem is the least densely populated area of the country and remains mostly untouched by tourists, but is popular among the locals. The West Frisian Islands and the Frisian Lakes, for instance, are prime destinations for a few days of outdoor fun. Southern Netherlands: It is a unique part of the Netherlands, distinguished from the rest of the country by its Catholic history and heavy religious influence, unique carnival celebrations and its "Burgundian way of life".
