River landscape in Suriname

A view of river landscape in Suriname

Suriname, officially the Republic of Suriname, is a country in northern South America. It is situated between French Guiana to the east and Guyana to the west. The southern border is shared with Brazil and the northern border is the Atlantic coast.

Suriname, at 163,000 sq. km is the smallest sovereign state in terms of area in South America. The country is the only Dutch-speaking region in the Western Hemisphere that is not a part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, and is the only state outside Europe with Dutch as an official language. The combined legacy of years of colonial occupation, immigration, and slavery has made Suriname one of the most multicultural societies in the world, with extreme ethnic, linguistic, and religious diversity. It has an estimated population of about 470,000 people, most of whom live on the country's north coast.
