Facts about Life in Paramaribo

Located on the Suriname River, Paramaribo offers a tropical rainforest climate. Starting life as a Dutch trading post in the 17th century, its skyline reflects this heritage, with black and white colonial-style buildings lining grassy squares. It is home to many attractions, including the Numismatic Museum, with artifacts dating back to 1679; the Central Market with its bazaar-like ambience and a huge selection of fresh produce; the stunning Neveh Shalom Synagogue and the restored 18th century Fort Zeelandia. Connoisseurs of fine food can further enjoy many international restaurants, from Indonesian, Italian and French to local cuisine.
