    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.

    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.

    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.

    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(?)

      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).

    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.

    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!

      Human Resources Maasvlakte 2 is peanuts compared to the origional Ijselmeer plan, and just create a polder for the entire markermeer and ijselmeer. However, you are talking about a 'minor' land extension project (in civil engineering terms) which is to boost export and keep our dominant harbour position in Europe. The revenue of that is way higher then that of new polder/farmland. Besides, maasvlakte 2 is not a polder so having to spend continuously money on pumping is not needed

    • TD Mike

      @Terr y We actually did, we took land from the North Sea to extend our harbour. It's called the Maasvlakte 2. It's was opened in 2013 (and yes we also have a Maasvlakte 1, which we also took from the North Sea).

    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.

    Great video, just wanted to add that William of Orange was not the first Dutch king (pretty sure I've heard Dutch people make this mistake as well so understandable). Most historians regard Louis Bonaparte, the brother of Napoleon, as the first king of the Netherlands as he ruled over the Kingdom of Holland which was established in the Netherlands by Napoleon early in the nineteenth century. The first king of the kingdom of the Netherlands as we know it today (established at the Congress of Vienna) was King William I who was a direct descendant in the male line from William of Orange's brother.

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.

      @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.

    • Martijn B

      @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.

    Fun Fact: The city of Dillenburg in germany is actually the ancestral home of the noble family of those of "Oranien" which later on became the royal family of the netherlands. But while the roayal family of course has pretty much no influence on the city itself and they have almost no land there except for the castle and the stud farm, they still have close ties to their ancestral land and there are still family members living in the Dillenburg Castle. For that reason the netherlands royal family not only generously supports the city of Dillenburg, they also donate large amounts of flowers every year to the city that are planted pretty much everywhere earning the city of Dillenburg the nickname "city of flowers".

    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.

    Little correction at 6:45: the sand plots aren't naturally occurring. They are in fact a consequence of over grazing. The Dutch farmers used to used a system called the "potstal" system whereby they would seasonally move caddle from the lower regions to the higher regions ("higher" meaning like three meters). The south of the Netherlands has a lot of loose sand in the ground and the over grazing as well as extreme furtilization from caddle waste led to the creation of these sand dunes. When left alone nature does reclaime them over time but they are actually a really cool place for hiking and internal tourism so now they are maintained.
