Welcome!
Just curious, is there any difference when calling The Netherlands as Holland? in my language we call your country something very similar to "Holland" and I was surprised when I found out it's (mostly?) called The Netherlands in english!

Oh god how I love Stalker shadow of Chernobyl... for me it´s one of the best SP games ever made.

Get to any city on eastern Ukraine now and play Stalker IRL, they say it's even better than Stalker itself, if you know what I mean  ;)

Holland, strictly speaking, refers to two regions in the Netherlands. But as pars pro toto it's generally understood as the Netherlands and it can be found in a number of languages I can imagine.

Holland is just one bordered Netherland. The Netherlands still has some 'special municipalities' in the Caribbean. Former Dutch colony's. Holland is the main country and also the King's and government's homecountry.

 

You can read all about it on the Wiki page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netherlands 

 

Interesting to me as well.
