Province in the west of the country, roughly occupying the northern half of the former province of Holland, which was disbanded in 1814. Biggest cities are Amsterdam and the provincial capital Haarlem. Although the centre of power of Holland originally was in the south of the county, economic power shifted to the north, most notably Amsterdam, in the 17th century. This city became one of the most important economic centres of the world, while to its north the Zaanstreek became the most industrialized region of the world, thanks to the use of windmills. Also part of the province is the region Westfriesland. The province is largely protestant, but especially in the north of the province and in the big cities there always have been large catholic populations. Until World War two Amsterdam had a large jewish community.
