Surinam

flag

Estimate population 456,900 - Capital: Paramaribo

 

 

Beautiful Suriname is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on the north, French Guiana on the east, Brazil on the south, and Guyana on the west. One major place of fascination is the largest lake, W.J. van Blommestein Lake, which was created by damming the Suriname River at Afobaka. The Borkopondo-Afobaka dam is a large generator of hydroelectricity and a fantastic example to other countries.

Tropical rainforests cover many areas of Suriname and wildlife include tapirs, deer, jaguars, and pumas which are preserved in several magnificent nature reserves. A rich culture and a painful history with the Spaniards and the Dutch has seen much change in this country. Suriname, in the past known as Dutch Guiana, finally gained independence from The Netherlands as a parliamentary republic in 1975.
