A country rich in history, architecture, and culture, there is hardly enough time in just one semester to explore everything the Netherlands has to offer. The Netherlands is one of the founding members of the European Union and NATO, hosts the International Court of Justice in The Hague, and is famously regarded as a very liberal and progressive country. The Netherlands was home to many famous painters, such as Rembrandt, Vermeer, Steen, van Gogh, and Mondriaan; and philosophers like Erasmus of Rotterdam and Spinoza. With a population of 17.25 million living within around 16,000 square miles, the Netherlands is one of the most densely populated countries in the world, and 50% of the country is only 3 feet above sea level. Whether you’re drawn to the cheese or wooden clogs, tulips or canals, herring or bikes, windmills or art, the Netherlands is a great place to explore abroad.
