Historical Reference

  • Paramaribo is a former Dutch colonial town from the 17th and 18th centuries planted on the coast of tropical South America. The original and highly characteristic street plan of the historic centre remains intact. Its buildings illustrate the gradual fusion of Dutch architectural design with traditional local techniques and materials.
