Fort Zeelandia is an important place for Surinamese history. It is very beautiful too. It is free to enter and look around. There is a small cafe inside and restrooms. The I Heart SU sign is also located here.

Had a very enjoyable few hours here. Unfortunately everything written is in Dutch however it is still worth a visit. Friendly staff.
