|Zoetermeer is a city in the western Netherlands, in the province of South Holland. "Zoetermeer", translated into English, means "Sweet Lake". When the building of the city is completed in a few years, Zoetermeer will be the third-biggest city in the province of South Holland, after Rotterdam and The Hague. |
For the last 35 years Zoetermeer has rapidly grown due to suburbanization. Many residents from The Hague and Rotterdam moved to Zoetermeer in the 1970's.
