Home - Suriname - Paramaribo
Paramaribo is the capital city of Suriname on the banks of the Suriname River. It’s known for ornate wooden Dutch colonial buildings in its center. On the banks of the river, the 17th-century Fort Zeelandia houses the Surinaams Museum, with exhibits on the region's history. Nearby, the wood-and-stone Presidential Palace faces Independence Square and is backed by the Garden of Palms, a public park.
