Located in Gravenstrat the Independence Square is home to the Presidential Palace. The main part of the building was built in the 18th century with modern extensions added on over the years. The building and the vast gardens are available for viewing only on Independence Day November 25th.

The Ministry of Finance

Many of Paramaribo’s buildings are constructed with wood; this is why the Ministry of Finance building constructed in brick is unique. The bricks are in fact the red bricks that were used as weights on the Dutch ships that sailed in from the Netherlands; this was of course during the country’s colonial days.

Palmentium

The Palmentium Garden was at first part of the beautiful Presidential Palace gardens. It was later separated to create the beautiful Palmentium Park. Enjoy the palm fringed paths and verdant picnic enclaves within the serene confines of the gardens.

Fort Zeelandia

Located in Kleine Combeweg the fort built by the French colonists is over 350 years old. The English later modernised the fort which was also used by the Dutch. In 1667 it was given its present name and later transformed into a museum around the 20th century.

Waterside Boulevard

The waterside boulevard was constructed after the devastating fires that destroyed the city in 1821 and 1832. These were originally the homes of merchandisers later converted to shops and restaurants; the white brick buildings called the waaggebouw are visible across the river. Close to the Waterside Boulevard is the ferry stop.

The Central Market

The Central Market of Suriname located in Paramaribo is where you will come across an eclectic blend of goods. The Suriname people being of mixed origin gives way to goods being created with strong African and Indian influences.

The Reformed Church

The original church was destroyed in the famous fire of 1821; it was however re-built to resemble the original construction in 1837. There are eight sides to the church while the yellow toned cathedral of St Petrus and Paulus located to the right of the church is one of South America's largest wooden constructions.

Commewijne River

Peperpot Nature Park
