Independence Square (Onafhankelijksplein)
Reviewed April 13, 2014

There are few tourist sites in the city, Most people come to Suriname for the forest.Nevertheless there are a few interesting sites around the capital and this is one of them. Get a guide and learn about the history of this unknown SA country.

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.
