“A Very Interesting Square”

Independence Square (Onafhankelijksplein)
Reviewed December 20, 2013

This square houses many Gov Buildings as well as the Presidential Palace.
We were there on a Sunday and were able to observe the bird singing contest that takes place on Sun mornings

Visited about two years ago
Nice square to walk around
No major buildings in Paramaribo
Good city to visit though
Although having to get a visa is a pain
Very easy to walk the city centre and very interesting

Suriname has done the best job among Guyana, Trinidad and Jamaica to preserve their rich colonial architecture in such a fine way. The lay out of Indep. Square with UNESCO City Paramaribo is stunning. Go enjoy it.

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.
