In 1667 Suriname was captured by the Dutch. They called the country
Dutch Guiana.

In 1954 Suriname became an constituent country within the kingdom of
The Netherlands as the Dutch Antilles are.

In 1975 Suriname became independent.

The main language is Dutch.
That makes it very easy for me to visit Suriname once :-) 
My mother tongue also is Dutch.
