holland photoHolland is a beautiful country located in the continent of Europe.

The population of Holland as of the year 2014 is around seventeen million people.

Holland sports about five main cities, the capital of which is called Amsterdam.

The population of the capital city, Amsterdam, as of the year 2014, averages 750,000 people.

The official language of Holland is Dutch, but English is taught as a second language in all schools.

For this reason, it is possible to get by in Holland even you do not know a word of Dutch: you are likely to find someone somewhere who understands English or could answer your questions in English

The size of Holland is 40,000 Square kilometers, much smaller than the country of Guyana.

The currency of Holland called the Euro, which is also used in France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Belgium and many other European countries. One euro = 1.36 USD dollars.

The main export and source of income of Holland is industrial machinery and equipment; or as my friend from Holland put it “that’s how we get rich”.

Religion in Holland

Although you will find Christians, Muslims, Hindus and many other religious groups in Holland, the vast majority (over 51%) of the population, are non-religious. For this reason, I choose to label Holland as a non-religious country. But it can also be labeled as a country of religious diversity.
