‘This is Holland’

What makes the Netherlands special? The challenge of seventeen million people living together in an area just over 41,000 square kilometres.
They all need to live, work, travel and recreate on this small piece of land. Nature needs space, but so does agriculture, industry and water… lots of water. Over eighteen percent of the Netherlands consists of rivers, lakes and sea. Twenty percent of our terri- tory is below sea level, which is home to no less than four milion people.
Over the course of hundreds of years the Dutch have mastered the building of dikes, windmills, flood defences and the construction of polders.
You will discover how culture, economics, nature, art and world heritage go hand in hand through the 135 beautiful photos in this book: THIS IS HOLLAND!
