Holland and the Netherlands are one and the same country. However, there are two provinces in the western part of the Netherlands (North Holland and South Holland) that in history had the name Holland.

Therefore some people say that Holland is only a part of the Netherlands. But nowadays people use the two names interchangeably. I think "The Netherlands" is more correct politically.



Check out video explaining the difference between Holland and the Netherlands.
