Zeeland: the feeling of an Island - The Netherlands

connected islands

Crossing bridges or drive over locks instead of taking a boat or a ferry to the multiple islands of Zeeland: The distaster of the 1953 flooding has led the authorities of The Netherlands to build one the greatest dam in the world to protect the low lands. The islands are now connected to the land but the feeling is safe.


The light of the sun coming over the North Sea, the noises of the birds and waves, the quietness of a remote area in the densely populated Netherlands, the Zeeland has still its islands feeling.
