The Netherlands is the European part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands , which is formed by the Netherlands, the Netherlands Antilles and Aruba . The Netherlands is a constitutional monarchy, located in northwestern Europe. It is bordered by the North Sea to the north and west, Belgium to the south, and Germany to the east. The Netherlands is often referred to by the name Holland. This is, however, misguided, since the provinces of North and South Holland in the western Netherlands are only two of the country's twelve provinces. The Netherlands is a densely populated and geographically low-lying country (its name literally means "low countries" or "low lands") and is popularly known for its windmills, clogs, dikes, tulips, bicycles, and social tolerance.
