The name Paramaribo is a degeneration of the Amerindian named Parmurbo situated along the river of Suriname. Paramaribo is a former Dutch colonial town from the 17th century.

Its buildings illustrate the gradual fusion of Dutch architectural influence with traditional local techniques and materials. The tropical rainforest climate allows warm days whole year round.
