The Netherlands

The Netherlands

The Netherlands is a country in Europe.

It is famous for its many beautiful rivers and canals. About a quarter of the Netherlands lies very low, lower than the water in the sea. High and thick dykes around the Netherlands don’t allow the water from the sea to flood the land.

The Netherlands is also famous for its flowers and fruit trees. In spring all the country looks like a flower garden.

The legend about the hero from Haarlem is famous in the Netherlands. Some people in other countries learned about it from the book Hans Brinker, or The Silver Skates, by Mary Dodge. You can see the monument to Hans in a park in the town of Santpoort-Noord.
