Flevoland

Flevoland, The Netherlands is the youngest province of The Netherlands. The creation of the province Flevoland started on the 3rd of October 1939 and became an official province on the 1st of January 1986. The area used to be part of the sea that was called the Zuiderzee, thus it was mostly underwater with a few islands every once in a while. However, people decided we needed more space as the population started to increase. Another reason was that the Zuiderzee was a rough sea and they wanted to tame the sea to ensure safety in the area.

While Flevoland is the newest province of The Netherlands, that doesn’t mean that there isn’t anything to do. There are national parks, a few older villages and some beautiful tulip fields to go to. For the rollercoaster fans, there is also a themepark that will make you very happy.The capital of Flevoland is Lelystad and the province Flevoland has around 400.000 people.
