Holland VS Netherlands
The difference between the Netherlands and Holland is something even Dutch people don’t know. The Netherlands is often referred to as Holland. The difference between the Netherlands and Holland is that the Netherlands consists out of all the twelve provinces and Holland only two provinces. North and South Holland are the two provinces that make Holland. Because of the maritime and economic power in the 17th century the Netherlands was known by Holland because the North and South Holland provinces are coastal provinces.
