“Nice Square”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Its on a few of the postcards and its a nice place to check out. We walked around it and while appealing to the eye, there's not much to do that we could see. Make it part of the city tour and it's part of the cherry on the Paramaribo Cake.

“Peaceful and Calm”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

It is not very huge, but it is pleasant and peaceful. There are statues dedicated to past Suriname politicians. There are many flagpoles with foreign flags flying. It is hot in the sun and there is no shade, so bring a hat or umbrella if you go.

“Independence Square gets refreshing uplift”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

The current work to give the square a face lift has had a positive impact. Soon I think it will be a place all Surinamese promote to tourists.

“Onafhankelijksplein/ Independence square”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

The different flags are a nice touch, but the waterkant needs to be finished to complement it. The fact the colonial buildings are still standing gives a nice touch
