Wanica District (Distrikt Wanica)

Wanica is a district of Suriname, in the northeast. Wanica's capital city is Lelydorp. Wanica has a population of 118,222 and an area of 443 km². Following neighbouring Paramaribo, Wanica is the second most populated and urbanised district of Suriname. Two thirds of the country's population live in these two districts.

The district's capital, originally called Kofi Djompo, was renamed in 1905 for Dutch architect Cornelis Lely, who was responsible for many large construction projects in the Netherlands and was also governor of Suriname.

Papayas and wheat are the main crops grown in Wanica. It is also home to a spring that has therapeutic properties. Recently, copper has been discovered in the Wanica district.

Country - Suriname

Flag of Suriname
Suriname (, US also, also sometimes spelled Surinam), officially known as the Republic of Suriname (Republiek Suriname ), is a country on the northeastern Atlantic coast of South America. It is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the north, French Guiana to the east, Guyana to the west and Brazil to the south. At just under 165000 km2, it is the smallest sovereign state in South America. Suriname has a population of approximately, most of whom live on the country's north coast, in and around the capital and largest city, Paramaribo.

Suriname was long inhabited by various indigenous people before being invaded and contested by European powers from the 16th century, eventually coming under Dutch rule in the late 17th century. As the chief sugar colony during the Dutch colonial period, it was primarily a plantation economy dependent on African slaves and, following the abolition of slavery in 1863, indentured servants from Asia. Suriname was ruled by the Dutch-chartered company Sociëteit van Suriname between 1683 and 1795.
