5 The way they live there lives And Facts Lifestyle You will find that you can live very easily in the Netherlands without a car. The public transportation network extends to every remote corner and although train and bus fares are not cheap, they are still nowhere near as expensive as buying and maintaining a car. Facts There are around 16 million bicycles in Holland, which supposedly means almost one for every inhabitant. The highest point in the country is called the ‘mountain’ and it is as much as 323 meters high. Hollanders usually have a bunch of flowers in their living rooms. Holland has the highest museum density in the world, with almost 1000 museums. The Van Gogh Museum and the Kröller-Müller Museum of Holland house the largest Van Gogh collections in the world. The first World Press Photo Exhibition was held in Holland only. The landscape of Holland is dotted with windmills, which have become its hallmark. A consistent drainage is necessary to save Holland from flooding. For the purpose, windmills were used in the previous centuries. Other uses of windmills in Holland are corn milling and saw milling. Over the years, the use of windmills has changed. Though still used for drainage, they are predominantly considered as tourist attractions. Holland makes up roughly 13 percent of The Netherlands. The country has over 4,400 km of navigable rivers, canals and lakes. The inhabitants of Holland are best known for their unique and colorful costumes. One can easily find people wearing their traditional costumes - a culture inherited from their ancestors. They often accessorize their costume with a pair of wooden shoes. Talking about the eating habits, Dutch cuisine is renowned in the world for its rich taste and aroma. Potato is the prime ingredient for a number of traditional Dutch recipes. Holland is also known for its wide variety of cheese. Holland is 6.7 meters below sea level, at its lowest point, which is a polder near Rotterdam. The country was one of the six founding members of the European Community. Holland is quite often termed as a ‘land of compromise’, as it always has a coalition government. Horticulture and greenhouse agri-businesses are abundant in the arable lands of Holland. Holland is the third largest exporter of agricultural produce, after U.S. and France, even though only 3% of the Dutch population is employed in the agriculture sector.France Geography in the region is very dynamic. This is the reason why the land occupied by Holland has never been stable. Rhine and the Meuse (Maas) are the main rivers of Holland. Until the 9th century, Frisians occupied the present-day Holland. As many as 300 castles in the counrty are open to the public.

6 The summary Differences Holland is completely different to the UK More people in Holland ride bikes in fact there are over 16 million bikes wow. And I personally think that the Dutch countryside is much more prettier than the UK. Sum up The sum up is that the Dutch are more passionate about their lifestyle and fitness levels and they look more after there wildlife and there famous flat country side with windmills
