The lowest elevation in Europe yet tallest people in the world. Welcome to the land that...MAKES its own land. The place where water is your biggest enemy and friend. Europe's interesting, meticulous, yet a little crazy and adventurous son, the #NETHERLANDS. -...Oh and for the record, that random dude is Hannah's little brother.

Indeed. Bikes have been tied very strongly to Dutch nationalism especially recently with the Russian oil crisis. The Dutch bicycle infastructure also is being copied all over Europe. The new bicycle storage in Amsterdam is dripping in Dutch nationalism.

Though while the total population density is higher it isn't as crowded as many people often like to imagine. Something to consider is that the Nile delta is about the same size as the Netherlands but has over 3 times the population. However while Egypt has that incredibly dense region it also has massive amounts of empty desert and that forces the average density down. So it isn't that the Netherlands is horribly crowded, it's just that it doesn't really have many empty areas.

Hello, I just wanna share some stories about my grandfather who is a veteran and grandfather's friend who is a veteran Dutch soldier. He ever told me about his struggles when he was still under colonialism. at that time he was caught by the dutch army and after interrogation he was allowed to go home. when he was detained and interrogated, there was a dutch soldier, he was very nice. he brought my grandfather went home at that time. After many years of independent Indonesia, when my grandpa saw the Dutch people who are on pilgrimage at the Dutch cemetery, he talked with them in Dutch because he was fluent in Dutch. maybe at that time the Dutch army who helped my grandfather heard the news in the Netherlands so he visited Indonesia. After that they met again and they became best friends until now. The Dutch veteran also visits Indonesia every year in August to carry out the commemoration of Indonesia's independence. But now he has died. My grandfather is really sad because he has passed away. Im also sad because he was very good to my grandfather and also to me.and now my grandpa also passed away. but I'm sure they must have been happy there:').thanks for read this.always spread kindness and love

This was an excellent video! My Oma actually lived in the Netherlands during WWII, and she met my grandfather there, who was serving for the Canadian military. If you ever heard stories about the "Dutch war brides," my Oma was one of them. About the music section, one artist of note (no pun intended) is Tom Holkenborg, aka Junkie XL, aka that guy who remixed that Elvis Presley song in the early 2000s. While his early work fused EDM with rock & metal, he went on to make music for video games and movies, including Scooby-Doo, Deadpool, the Sonic The Hedgehog movies, and several films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Silently crying because the Dutch guy called my province “North-Holland” when it’s really “North-Brabant” 😂 Also, a small note: Willem van Oranje was NOT the first king of the Netherlands. He was what is called a “stadhouder”. The Netherlands didn’t become a kingdom until 1815 with the first king being Willem I van Oranje (they sometimes get confused because they’re both called Willem).

Also a great friend of The Netherlands was Japan. We've had a trade agreement with them for over 400 years without any breaks in between. We were the only country to be allowed to visit when Japan closed the country. There was some strife during WW2 due to Japan removing Dutch rule over (now) Indonesia because of their oil industry which was vital for Japan's war effort. But we cool now.

The "hmm we should hang out some time" comment from Bangladesh is actually pretty accurate, there are numerous projects of water management in other countries. The Netherlands also helped with the flooding in New Orleans in 2001(?)
Minoreducation Anos atrás
Yes, an 50 head strong American delegation visited the Dutch waterworks some months after the flood of New Orleans in 2005.They based their 'Greater New Orleans Urban Water Plan' on Dutch flood control. The main idea is seeing water as an asset instead of a danger, so they gave much more room for water on a friendly and natural way. Less concrete and much more absordable surfaces all in and around New Orleans so it can absorb and store excess stormwater. We have those buffers everywhere in the cities in the Netherlands and combined them with recreational or/and natural functions. And around rivers we have spare-farmerland that can take the function of a temporaly waterbuffer when the river can't take all rainwater from hunderd of miles away (like Germany/France or even the Alpes).

So interesting country. Can't imagine an entire country being totally flat. I live in a relatively hilly Czechia, luckily in the Elbe valley which is the flattest part of the country so we have a "preview" of Netherlands there ... including similar agriculture, sand, flowers, wind mills and floods. Still we do see mountains literally everywhere around us in the distance on a clear weather.

My Sunday School teacher grew up in South Africa ( his parents were missionaries there) just by chance one of my classmates was from the Netherlands- Ted and Tone, short for Antonius, had a few times of joking together. Ted's Afrikaans was pretty well understood by Tone, I sat on the sidelines. I was close neighbors with an Amish family, so knew a little German and then married into a Dutch family. I sorta could follow along. Even the week Tone was asked to lead us in prayer, I still got enough to understand. So that's that. And P.S. most of the tallest are from Freisland- my Oma was Freis, and they actually have their own language. Handsome good- looking people from there.

Loved the video. Just a suggestion: There are three officially recognised regional languages in the Netherlands: Limburgs, Fries and Nedersaksisch (Low Saxon). And then there are the official recognised non-regional minority languages Sinti-Romanes and Jiddisch, and on the special municipalities Papiamento (Bonaire) and English (Saba and Sint-Eustatius). So basically the Netherlands has 8 languages that are officially recognised.

@Martijn B I’m Dutch mate, i am merely stating facts. The plan was for the majority of free French/Americans to invade France and for the British Empire forces to invade the Benelux countries. Though some polish people were involved with the liberation of our country, the size of if was pretty small compared to the Empire and most people don’t mention it. The propaganda of the French works till thos day when they make it seem that they freed themselves, while the truth is that the Americans carried them and only allowed them to enter paris first after the Germans were mostly defeated for a symbolic victory and for propaganda. We Dutchies have never forgotten the sacrifices, especially the brave Canadians. And yes, it was a invasion. Sure it was a liberation in our pov, but in tactical terms it was still a invasion.

@GigaChadTheDemigod. I don't know about the French, but the Dutch don't consider the British, Canadian and Polish forces entering the country an invasion.

@Tuub Surely the Canadians and the Polish, as part of the British army, finally liberated the Netherlands as Montgomery's army held the Northern part of the front. But the Americans played role in the war in the air and their paratroopers played a large role in Marget-Garden.

@Daniel Van Mook Americans didn't play a big role in the Netherlands, they were more concerned with invading Germany. The Netherlands was mostly liberated by the UK and its colonies.

You could have also mentioned that their East India Company (VOC, who also found that first stock exchange) can be labeled as the world's first megacorporation (like the ones in some of those dystopia fics); they got their own military, currency, their own system on their own! It eventually ended just before the 19th century. (I'm from Indonesia)

Some corrections: The animation for the provinces and the spoken names dont line up. Noord-Holland and Brabant (we dont call it Noord-Brabant) are switched. Nobody cares if you say Holland, its less syllables, maybe some country farmers will get upset, but generally its fine. You can pronounce Holland. You cant pronounce Nederland. Besides the tourist attractions mentioned we also have a lot of nature reserves that are unique in Europe. It's very easy to get around on a bike and we have tons of campsites. So, if you're looking for an affordable holiday in nature in Europe while never being more than a couple kilometers away from a supermarket you're in luck. We want to get more visitors who don't just go to Amsterdam. IJsselmeer is pronounced more like Aisselmeer than Jelsemeer. Pronunciation of the Dutch sayings was pretty good. Suriname recently found some huge oil fields and we let them have independence in 1973. So that story gets even better. I'm not even mad, I just hope they manage to keep most of the money and use it for good. "ietist" is supposed to be "ietsist". It means youre not religious but you believe in "something". I'm pretty sure our speedskating team does more steroids than the Russian team. Home birth reduces load on hospitals and there is always a qualified midwife present for the delivery. This is a very old tradition. Older than writing. Hospitals are also not very safe places for babies with weak immune systems, they are full of diseases. Clogs are still worn by people who work the earth, others wear high boots. Clogs are easier to clean and are more durable. Burgundy Hapsberg stuff isn't that confusing. Everyone spoke a form of Dutch from Groningen to Rijssel and Atrecht. Areas belonged to different factions at different times but they shared the language and a cultural identity. Leeuwenhoek is not pronounced as Luwenhoek but as Le:wenhoek. A long e sound, as in lake in English, is represented in Dutch by 'ee' or 'eeu' if its before a 'w', with more infection. Most people don't see Belgium as an extension anymore, but rather as a cousin that is a bit soft in the head. We do love them, as we love anyone who speaks our beautiful unique language. We just love to joke about recolonizing it. Would be for the best. And northern France as well, seeing as they just let it deteriorate for the past 200 years and we need land. It used to be a major industrial powerhouse. Look at it now. Overall there were fewer mistakes than I expected.

Limburg ( minor typo on the map in the first few minutes) :D That being said this is what I learned in school, during 12 years of schooling summarized in 1 video. Just a fact about Papiamentu, it's more like Portuguese (the way words are pronounced can sound like Portuguese), it has some Dutch words, but also has Spanish. The word gezellig is one of my favorites, while the basic translation in English is coziness, it falls short of what it really means, it is used in so many scenarios.

One thing you probably should have pointed out about the relationship between Germany and the Netherlands is the similarity between Dutch and Low German. Low German is a minority language of northern Germany and the Netherlands, and is similar to both languages, sort of a mid-point on the West Germanic dialect continuum. They also have a shared history as both were formerly parts of the Holy Roman Empire and first areas to convert to Protestantism. Either way, cool video!

Those old windmills were used for much more than just pumping out water! Sure most of them had that task but there were also mills used for sawing, making paper, flour, or even grinding the ingredients for gunpowder. For some mills it was even possible to swap out the tooling in order to change the task of the mill. These windmills were little factories, but people (like my great grandmother) actually lived in them.

My personal theory is that the Dutch are so tall so their heads can stay above water during floods, clogs are actually emergency flotation devices (explains why they’re kinda boat-shaped) and the windmills are massive fans to hold back the water so they have time to put on their clogs.
