Here is a summary of the information you should know before flying off to the country.
The Netherlands is a constitutional hereditary monarchy since 1815 , having been a republic between 1581 and 1806 , then occupied by France between 1806 and 1815. The country would have to refer to its low altitude and therefore its continuing battle against the water .
The Netherlands are founding members of the Organization of the North Atlantic Treaty (NATO) , the European Union ( EU) and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) .
People traveling to the Netherlands generally feed the desire to see the canals , houses with gabled facade ( as in Amsterdam ) and the famous windmills . They are also there to taste the beers and cheeses typical of the country.
The Dutch coast is visited mainly by locals , even if it is not impossible to come across foreigners. In addition to the Dutch people also speak English for the most part , most include German and French to get by , which makes communication easy .
Formalities and visas
For French and European citizens more generally, only an identity card valid is necessary to go on Dutch territory.
The Swiss and Canadians must, in turn, bring a valid passport.
A visa is not in all cases not necessary, if the stay is less than three months.
The Netherlands does not have any particular health risk. The conditions are the same as in France..
