What is the difference between вот and здесь?

Ok, this might sound like a stupid question, but I'm still new to Russian and I've seen them used interchangeably and used at the same time, any help will be much appreciated.

    You're okay :) You're still learning. There is no such thing as a stupid question.

    The easiest way to put it is, вот means here as in an object. For example, the bed is here. Here is your bed.

    здесь is a place. As in the park is here.

    The words that can be used interchangeably are здесь & тут, not вот.
    burner0 has already explained the difference, so I would not repeat it.
