Study in Netherlands
The Netherlands, a country in north western Europe, is known for a flat landscape of canals, tulip fields, windmills and cycling routes. Amsterdam, the capital, is home to the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and the house where Jewish diarist Anne Frank hid during WWII. Canal side mansions and a trove of works from artists including Rembrandt and Vermeer remain from the city’s 17th-century “Golden Age.” The Netherlands is the fifth most densely populated country in the world and the most densely populated country in Europe with a population over 16 million. Amsterdam is the capital, but the government resides in The Hague. More than 40% of the total population lives in the Randstad, the agglomeration of the cities of Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht. The Netherlands has been a centre of international trade since the 17th century. As the world becomes more globalized, the spirit of diversity and multiculturalism is an advantage.
