The Dutch were one of the greatest explorers of the world,they build an empire in connection to that and they still today have connections to that. They are obviously historically and also today very industrious and inventive people that accomplished alot in all sorts of fields,much more then their tiny population might suggest. An impressive country,people,and history. I also like that they are so connected with water,just like my own country sweden is,I love water and always enjoyed being near it.

It is so stupid.... everytime i see how NL still gives CA tulips as gratitude it just makes me want to cry. A sign of gratitude... a sign of "we didn't forget the kindness you bestowed upon us"... its... I don't know. The people involved long died most likely but the gratitude is still there. It is beautiful

If I may give you some extra tips on Dutch music: Hardwell and all those DJ's in my opinion produce the same (boring) stuff. Yes, half the world knows them and they are as Dutch as can be, but if you want Dutch music you (most likely) never heard of, sung by artists you most likely never heard of as well, here's a 'small' list. I sincerely hope the layout doesn't mess anything up. I divided the list into songs sung in English or just instrumental and songs in Dutch or Frisian. Songs with an * are songs I absolutely recommend on personal opinion ;) even if you can't understand the lyrics. Dutch artists, sung English or instrumental: 2 Brothers On The 4th Floor - The sun will be shining Racoon - Love You More * Anouk - The Dark (and so much other songs from her, she is one of our best known artists) Close II You - Baby Don't Go DJ Jean - Love Come Home DJ Paul Elstak - The promised land Dolly Dots - Love me Just a Little Bit More * Do - I Will * Double Date - Email To Berlin (This was a Dutch Eurovision Song Contest track) Fabienne - Will you still love me Grooveyard - Mary Go Wild Ilse Delange - The Great Escape John Marks - Update Kensington - Sorry * Michelle - Out on my own (This was a Dutch Eurovision Song Contest track) Postmen - Crisis * Rene Froger - Crazy way about you Party Animals - Atomic The Golden Earring - When the lady smiles Stevie Ann - One Year Of Love Sunclub - Fiësta Ten Sharp - You * Total Touch - Somebody else's lover Total Touch - Touch me there Total Touch - One Moment your mind * Tower - See You Tonight * Vengaboys - Boom boom boom Vengaboys - Kiss (When the Sun Don't shine) Within Temptation - Angels Within Temptation - Stand My Ground Driftwood - Freeloader Twarres - She Couldn't Laugh * Sung Dutch or Frisian: De Kast - Een Nije Dei * (Sung in Frisian by a Frisian group. This was their breakthrough-single which was the first Frisian single ever to reach national charts. Doe Maar - De bom (This was a protest song against the nuclear war-threat in the eighties) The group 'Doe Maar' (something that translates to 'Whatever' or 'Just do what you want') was VERY popular in the eighties and produced ska and punk influenced music: their music is still being played today) The Amazing Stroopwafels - Oude Maasweg * (Many people think their version of 'Manhattan Island Serenade' completely surpasses the original. The song is about a car breaking down, describing in incredible ways what the surrounding looks like, what the driver feels like at that moment and what the weather is like in the surroundings of Rotterdam) 3J's - Watermensen (A song on our fight against the water) Acda & De Munnik - De Kapitein (deel 2) (a funny song about a couple breaking up) Abel - Onderweg * (A song about a man who thinks about his ex-girlfriend. This song was hugely popular in 2000 in both the Netherlands and Belgium) André van Duin - Als de zon schijnt (This artist is a well-known comedian in the Netherlands, but very few people know his beautiful voice. This song is about the sun and how the world looks different when it shines) Blof - Een manier om thuis te komen * (This a rock-band from the province of Zeeland: one of the most well-known rockbands in the Netherlands. They are known for their poetic lyrics, which is why this is hard to explain. I think it's about someone who lost his partner and gets advice from someone on how to recover) Brainpower - Dansplaat (Probably our best known rapper/hip-hop artist. The title is 'Dancetrack/Dancerecord' and basically sums up a bunch of jibberish) Circus Custers - Monica (Someone reminiscing about the memories he has of a girl with a tragic life when he was in primary school and how he can only guess what has become of her) De Jazzpolitie - Liefdesliedjes (A lovesong about someone summing up all kinds of words and short sentences that don't really pass the message of how much he actually loves his partner) Def Rhymes - Schudden * (Our foreign music influence at it's best. Def Rhymz is kind of like the Dutch Eminem: Don't take everything he says too seriously, most of his tracks and music videos that went on the charts are downright hilarious) De Poema's - Mijn Houten Hart (A love song, but very poetic and thus hard to explain) Freek de Jonge - Leven na de dood (A funny song about life after Death) Frits (Freek de Jonge & The Nits) - Dankzij de Dijken * (This song was originally done by the Dutch group The Nits. Cooperation with comedian Freek de Jonge turned this song kind of into a song of praise of our dykes and everything we do to fight the water, a song that (as far as I know) became far better known than the original) Han van Eijk - Leef! (A sung about living your own life, with your own ideas and such. This was the main them to 'Big Brother', a TV-series where a house was stuffed with cameras, to follow everything the occupants of the house were doing. Shocked the world back then, now not that groundbreaking anymore, the song is still good) Harrie Jekkers - De man in de wolken * (A very poetic, beautiful song that appears (to me) to be about the creation of the world in the beginning. Harrie Jekkers is a famous comedian, but has some beautifull songs in his repertoire) Henk Westbroek - Zelfs Je Naam Is Mooi * (A love song where the singer describes about everything a man can like about a woman: the songtitle translates to 'Even your name is beautiful' Jim - Doe dit doe dat (A powerful song about someone who's fed up with his relationship. He was runner-up in the first season of the Dutch Idols, but has quite the career today) Marco Borsato - Binnen * (A love song that describes all the feelings that go along with having a crush on someone. The music video seems to explain a bit better that the person sung about has mutual feelings and there is a happy future, though the lyrics not completely cover that) Marco Borsato - Ik leef niet meer voor jou (From the same artist, a song that is completely the opposite of the above. Everything that annoys him in a relationship and has already made him to break up, pass in this powerful song) Pia Douwes - Mijn leven is van mij * (she's an international renowned singer in the musical genre. The title is something like 'This is my life/I Own my life' and she sings about everything and everyone who tries to take control over her) Rowwen Heze - Bestel maar (A song that is more from the 'carnaval' genre. It's basically only about drinking beer and the 'gezelligheid' (Cosyness) in a cafe, sung in Limburg's dialect (Limburg is the most southern province of the Netherlands) Sarah - Labyrint * (A song from a woman warning lovers how deceiving and hard the way to her heart can be. Unfortunately, she was way ahead of her time and her career ended shortly after this first adventure in the new millennium. Many compared her album (Wat ik wil > What I want) to Madonna's Ray of Light and indeed, Sarah's album has some topnotch futuristic (Dutch, unfortunately) tracks on it) Splitsing - Een zomer lang (Bit hard to explain, but it basically is about someone looking at beautiful women at the beach and life and thoughts in summer) Tim Immers - Liever Dan Lief (Love song basically about someone who is jealous that his (former?) crush is now dating someone else and how he would be the better choice) Trijntje Oosterhuis - De Zee * (The singer from 'Total Touch' in the 'English sung' list. A powerful and beautiful song about the sea and how we look at it (at least, that's what I think of it) Twarres - Wêr Bisto (again, a Frisian group with a song in Frisian, a love song where someone asks the question 'where are you' (which is wat 'Wêr bisto' means in Frisian)

The road E22 or A7 does not cross the dike EnkHuizen Lelystad bus this road goes over de Afsluitdijk (a 32 km road between Noord-Holland and Friesland), with on the leftside the Waddenzee and on the rightsite the IJsselmeer.

I love this reaction!!! One tiny 'correction' though. You said "It's HUGE", actually The Netherlands (even including the Islands) is really really REALLY tiny compared to most other countries in the world. It's on place 131 out of 194 countries and is only 280.24 mi² compared to USA's 3.797.000 mi², which makes it's achievements and statistics all that more impressive!

New York was New Amsterdam. That's why the NY boroughs has names derived from Dutch names. Harlem = Haarlem (city) , Brooklyn = Breukelen (village), Staten Island = Staaten Eylandt, Bronx = Broncks land.
Redbad van Rijn (17 days ago)
Yankee = Jan Kees.

Coney Island = Konijn Eiland, Flushing = Vlissingen, Block Island = after Adriaen Block, Long Island = Lange Eylandt, Rikers Island = after Abraham Rycken... Albany was founded as Beverwijck, Kingston as Wiltwijck, Yonkers as Colen Donk and there's many more. 😊

The Bronx [a borough of NYC] and Amsterdam Ave [a street in Manhattan], come from the Dutch. The Dutch, stole Manhattan/NYC, from the Indians. the Brits came later; and changed it, to New York; named after York, a city in England.
In1998able (1 month ago)
The Dutch paid the Indians paid 60 Guilders for Manhattan so they didn't steal it. And It's name after Duke of York and Albany, the future king James II not the city York.

I understand you're short 'n all, but I think you might be the first in Dutch history that's called our country huge. We're the size of Switzerland and Denmark, or New Hampshire & Vermont combined.

We are a tiny but very proud country. Everything is very ordered here. Healthcare is available to everyone. Doesn't matter if you are rich or not. You will get the same health care. Our social security is top notch. If you can't work or can't find work you will get enough money to live your life. The most important is, "we have the happiest children in the world, the lowest income difference in the world, and a rich history. Welcome to the Netherlands 🇳🇱 ❤️

@JIDF bot We have Muslims over here a lot. Toxicating our healt system,with there inbred children.

@JIDF bot our healthcare is privatized too, it's just mandatory insurance.
JIDF bot (1 month ago)
Because you are a rich country government subsidies work well, also you are European whereas in the USA you need 100% privatization because people in America are parasites especially black people who will abuse the welfare system it's bad. Also Netherlands among other countries isn't socialist it has low corporate taxes and high individual taxes. People who wasn't free stuff want to blame there problems on corporations when they are the ones providing them with jobs

Another Marcel that I know that is from the Netherlands is what I consider one of my dearest online friends and is a co-admin for a group we take care of on FB. Often, he is a mystery to me in the ways of his homeland...I truly thank you and Marcel B. for sharing this with us all because now I know a bit more about him and where he lives. A very beautiful country to be sure...

If you have the chance, visit the European Netherlands. It is a beautiful country. But I confess my favorite part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands is Aruba. Try it some time. I think you and your family will love it. Great video.

And if you do visit European Netherlands, let me know. Maybe we can meet up somewhere.

Lovely video. Surprisingly they did not mention our bikes. Almost every one here has one or more bikes not only for recreation but also in use for every day transportation to school or to work. Even very young children (from 3-4 years of age) and also many very old people can ride a bike.

I always find it interesting to see non-Dutchies react to the Netherlands, because a lot of things I find normal (which makes sense) they/you find fascinating.

Please react Angelina Jordan. The magical girl with the magical voice. She bring back to life many great singers who are not with us anymore, with her astonish redentions of their songs. Amy Winehouse, Billie Holiday, Dinah Washington, Lesley Gore, Freddie Mercury, Whitney Houston, Patsy Cline, Frankie Valli, Aretha Franklin, screamin Jay Hawkins and many others.

It was the most entertaining educational video on the Netherlands I could find. There were a few mistakes (instead of "Walden Islands" it's "Wadden Islands", they showed a picture of the King and his mom, but captioned it as the King and his wife, and other little things) but all in all it gave a pretty good overview of our little country. The music at that one commercial (the one with the orange car, right?) you liked was actually from a German band, not Dutch. I have a few more videos about a Dutch theme park called "Efteling," coming soon. Ish.
