Though sparsely populated, Flevoland has a story that is as deep and interesting as the waters it was reclaimed from in this century. The entire province was underwater as recently as the early 1900s and has only arisen as part of a progressive engineering project that predates World War II, and the province was only christened in 1986.
The area is flat and green and bordered by waterways that make dikes, bridges, pumping stations and dams as much a part of the landscape as trees and grass. Due to its lack of topography and high water table, agriculture is abundant in Flevoland. There is an unspoiled quality to the province that is refreshing and cleansing. Among major sights of the province are Schokland, a UNESCO World Heritage site as a former island on the Ijsselmeer Lake. Major cities of the province include Almere, Lelystad (the capital) and Zeewolde.
