The Hague is the third largest city in the Netherlands after Amsterdam. It is located in the west of the country, in the province of South Holland, of which it is also the provincial capital.
|(Calm and tranquil town)|
The Hague is the de facto seat of government, not the official capital of the Netherlands. City life concentrates around the Hofvijver and the Binnenhof, where the parliament is located.

The city has many civil servants and diplomats. The number and variety of expatriates makes the city quite culturally diverse, with many foreign pubs, shops and cultural events.
