10 Reasons to Move to Holland

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

People willing to move abroad often consider starting their new life in Great Britain or the USA, forgetting about other countries with wonderful levels of life, fantastic job opportunities, or breathtaking landscapes. Holland is one such country, with longer paid time off than their American companions have, shorter working weeks, and affordable costs of life. Here are 10 reasons why moving to Holland will be a life-changing decision.

#1 A Dream Place to Live and Work

One of the greatest places for a person looking for a new place to live and work is Holland, the country with the shortest working week in the world. Looking at the infographic prepared by Bamboo HR, women work there an average of 25 hours, and men spend 34 hours at work – when the hours are accumulated, it is possible to work 4 days a week only.

The paid time off at the beginning of the career in Holland is 20 days per year, which is more than twice as much when it is compared to America. Lots of people from European countries decide to take welding jobs in the Netherlands, which gives them a chance to get a decent salary for their skills.

#2 Affordable Costs of Life

When looking for a place to live, it seems crucial to analyse the cost of living, as even a high salary may not be enough to pay the rent, do the shopping, and lead a comfortable life in a country with high prices.

When it comes to living in the Netherlands, the average monthly rent is about 800 euros, giving you a chance to rent an apartment or even a house without much trouble. As most people in Holland use public transport, not their cars, you do not have to worry about saving money to buy one, or to maintain it.

#3 The Best Healthcare System in the World

When moving to another country, it is necessary to think about the healthcare system too. In Holland, there is nothing to worry about, as the system is claimed to be the best in the world. It is accessible thanks to the health insurance paid by the employer of a government program, but even without any of them, it is affordable. There is no maximum age to get medical assistance. Can you find another country where the average cost of health care is $1,615? Annually, not monthly.

#4 Powerful Economy

With a love for innovation and making business, Europe admires Holland for its economy, which is one of the most successful. The country specialists focus on digitalisation, proved by giving residency to lots of companies with such a profile. It is a great country for people skilled in technology or business topics. Finding a job is relatively easy, with a four percent unemployment rate. People working in Holland appreciate the wages, which are higher than in most countries in Europe.

#5 Ensure Good Education for Your Kids

Another benefit of living in the Netherlands is the level of education children receive. The education system is also praised in Europe as being one of the best in the continent, and most importantly, nobody has to pay for it, even in high school. Students do their best to be accepted to prestigious universities – the University of Amsterdam, Delft University of Technology, and Erasmus University Rotterdam.

#6 Feel Safe

Holland seems to be the country with all the most important systems functioning on the top level. It is also the safest place to live in Europe, with the lowest crime rate among other countries. It may be connected to the fact that the number of police officers in the Netherlands has increased.

#7 Visit the Capital City

Strolling through Amsterdam, the capital city of Holland, may seem impressive, among canals, museums, and art galleries. The landmarks to see include the Rijksmuseum (National Museum), Van Gogh Museum, and Royal Palace on Dam Square. You can also go to the famous the Red Light district or the Heineken Brewery.

#8 Learn About a New Culture

Coming to Holland you may be surprised how warm and welcoming the people will be. They will give you the impression you have lived in the country for long. The people know English very well, so you can easily communicate with them. Enjoy the local food, clothing, and entertainment, and fall in love with Dutch culture.

#9 Delve into the History

Dutch cities are pretty old, offering lots to see for tourists and lovers of history. It is enough to go to the medieval city of Rothenburg to see Anna Frank’s house. Holland has a history closely related to the navy, which left a mark on the visitors.

#10 Stay Close to Nature

Trying to describe the most positive features of the Dutch people, one of them would be the love and respect for nature. In Holland, you can enjoy life in parks full of flowers and trees. The country is recognised for its care of the environment and the search for renewable sources of energy.
