SR Parliament


Originally built of timber in 1718, the seat of the Suriname national assembly was completely destroyed by a fire on August 1st 1996. The parliament then relocated to the "Het Park" building situated on Independence Square in Paramaribo. This contemporary concrete building was civil engineer P.J. Nagel's first assignment in Suriname.
