Culture of Almere-Stad. Places to visit - old town, temples, theaters, museums and palaces

Almere is a young and beautiful city, which was founded on the lands literally reclaimed from the sea. A hundred years ago, the shallow Zuiderzee Bay that covered its area was drained due to a serious threat of floods. The construction of the first buildings of the modern city began in 1976, eight years later Almere has been transformed into an independent municipality, and today it is one of the most promising and rapidly developing cities in the country.
For many travelers, local cuisine is associated primarily with crispy toasts and tender cheese, as well as a variety of hot sandwiches and meat dishes. All the meals that visitors are … Open
Given the fact that the city was founded only recently, Almere has neither important historical sights nor other monuments of antiquity. The main feature of Almere is its beautiful modern buildings, which can rightfully be considered true examples of modern architecture. Many buildings are executed in a unique futuristic style, being distinguished by unusual architectural shapes and original coloring. Many streets shine with all the colors of the rainbow, but such architecture is rather typical for a newer part of the city. The oldest buildings can be found near the canals and in the port area.
In addition to interesting buildings, here you can find several attractive restaurants, the menu of which is widely appreciated by seafood lovers. Holidaymakers should definitely take a stroll in the city center accommodating many restaurants and shops. Near the center of Almere is a beach, which is perfect for a relaxing holiday away from the bustle of big cities. In addition, there are several beautiful parks in the city, which are ideally suited for walking and cycling. Each park has its own picnic area and a special children's playground, so there are always a lot of tourists. Fans of painting have a chance to visit Museum De Paviljoens housing collections of artworks by many contemporary artists. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
