Regions[edit]

The regions of the Netherlands are divided in the North, South, West and East Netherlands. Opposed to common practise in other countries, the Dutch regularly do not define the areas of their country according to position, but on the overall position of the Province, i.e. the most western tip of Gelderland is clearly positioned south to the centre, yet because the province is considered East this area is too.

Official regions[edit]

Many regions in the Netherlands are officially defined by certain regulations of organizations.
