World Travels - The Netherlands

My Trip to The Netherlands

This section of the website features photos taken on my trip to The Netherlands in the summer of 1997. I spent several days in Amsterdam and took side trips to Leiden and Belgium.

The 34,000 square kilometers of The Netherlands are mostly man-made from areas that were drained and are now protected by dikes. More than half of the country is below sea level, yet The Netherlands is the most densely populated country in Europe with a population of 15.65 million people.
