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.

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
Almere can be fairly called the youngest city in the Netherlands. Its construction began in 1976. It is also the largest, with 216,000 inhabitants, agglomeration of the Flevoland region, … Open
You should start exploring the city from Station Almere Centrum. This place has its own unique color and seems to be living its own life. The station is not similar to other railway stations in Dutch cities, but it is precisely this fact that makes it striking. Exiting the station, you can begin to discover the city from the parks, and the first contender for this role is Mandela Park, since it is located right next to the railway station. This park is surrounded by greenery, which most charmingly affects its attractiveness to visitors.
Langs het Weerwater in Almere-Stad The building of the World Trade Center, fashionable and modern, attracts all tourists to at least take a quick glance at it. The building is located right there too in the central region. You can begin visiting the attractions of the city from it by arriving in Almere from the railway station. The architecture of the Corrosia Theater, Expo & Film is astounding. The amazing building is used for hosting concerts, exhibitions and festivals. Location near the water adds a special romantic twist to it.
In Almere, every tourist will have awesome opportunities for fun after sunset. Jiggerz nightclub invites everyone who loves dancing until sunrise. Here you will enjoy delicious cocktails and … Open
The museums in the city are also very beautiful and definitely worth visiting. Subsequently, the Veiligheidsmuseum PIT is simply a paradise for children – the fact is that through games, children are acquainted with various kinds of professions such as work of a policeman, work in the Emergency Services, medical services, and investigators. Interactive exhibits play a significant role in the museum attaining such popularity. In addition, there is another opportunity for children and that is to drive on small carts along a special road with traffic lights and cameras. The museum though small, is definitely worth a visit, and the impressions gotten from visiting it (especially among the youngest citizens) will remain the most pleasant. But then again, there is another museum Erfgoedhuis Eindhoven, which will amaze you not only with exhibits (among which are animal bones), but also with interesting modern architecture.
Langs het Weerwater in Almere-Stad You can go for a wonderful walk or cycling along the harbor. Unthinkably astonishing views which are offered to the human eye simply amaze the imagination. The result is that you will find yourself involuntarily feeling envious of the locals, who see such beauty every day. Interesting from such point of view (that is, as a place where you can take a walk) is Kromslootpark. All immersed in greenery, the park appeals to those who wish to bury yourself in silence and enjoy the beautiful views, relinquishing the rest of the world. However, if you are with children it is worth visiting the park Stadslandgoed De Kemphaan. There are many playgrounds here where the kids will surely have lots of fun.
Miniature Almere Stad won’t disappoint connoisseurs of comfort, as a choice of hotels in the city is excellent. Van Der Valk Almere hotel is aimed at a wide range of visitors and is … Open
The area surrounding Almere is also full of interesting sights. Let’s take for example, the castle Muiderslot, which is very well preserved. The first information about the castle dates back to the year 1280. Its characteristic feature is that you can explore the premises and take photos while dressed in medieval costumes, shoot a bow or a crossbow, and take part in a knightly tournament. There is also interactive entertainment, which again is very popular among the younger population. Girls will find the Princess initiation ceremony to be very interesting. In addition, there is a museum on site, whose exhibits include medieval weapons and armor.
