Description: Set on tropical South America’s northern coast, Paramaribo is a former Dutch colonial town from the 17th and 18th centuries. The historic centre’s original and highly characteristic street plan still remains intact. Its buildings exemplify the steady synthesis of Dutch architectural influence with the long-established practices and materials of the locals. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
  Paramaribo (nickname: Par'bo) is the capital and largest city of Suriname, located on banks of the Suriname River in the Paramaribo District. Paramaribo has a population of roughly 250,000 people.
