The Netherlands

informally Holland,is a country primarily located in Western Europe and partly in the Caribbean, forming the largest constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
In Europe, it consists of 12 provinces that border Germany to the east, Belgium to the south, and the North Sea to the northwest, with maritime borders in the North Sea with those countries and the United Kingdom.
In the Caribbean, it consists of three special municipalities: the islands of Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba.[h] The country's official language is Dutch, with West Frisian as a secondary official language in the province of Friesland, and English and Papiamentu as secondary official languages in the Caribbean Netherlands.
Dutch Low Saxon and Limburgish are recognised regional languages (spoken in the east and southeast respectively), while Sinte Romani and Yiddish are recognised non-territorial languages.


The Dutch and tulips

that comes to mind? Well, apart from the coffee-shops and the red light district. Yeah, tulips in the Netherlands, right? You got that right!

Every tulip season in the Netherlands, lots of tourists flock into the country to visit Keukenhof Flower Gardens and be mesmerised by the array of flowers, bulbs and tulips on display.


The tulip plant is pretty much the symbol of the Netherlands but one question people never really ask is; “How did tulips become a thing in the Netherlands?”

Before we look into the history of the Netherlands’ relationship with tulips, let us find out what tulips are.

What are Tulips?

The tulip is a bulbous spring-flowering plant of the lily family. I promise you won’t be wrong if you claimed that the tulip and the onion are related. Tulip flowers are usually boldly coloured, cup-shaped and incredibly symmetrical. The name “tulip” is thought to be derived from a Persian word for turban, which the flower kind of resembles.

How did tulips come to the Netherlands?

While tulips may be very popular in the Netherlands, it must be noted that they didn’t originate in these parts. They are believed to have originated from the Tien Shan mountain ranges in central Asia and had already been cultivated by gardeners in the Ottoman Empire for decades. Tulips were rare and exotic plants and Western Europe soon became fascinated with them as soon as they were brought in. They were officially introduced in the Netherlands at the end of the sixteenth century.
