Colors of Almere-Stad - traditions, festivals, mentality and lifestyle

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, which is the seventh biggest in the country. The decision to build a new city was caused by the growing community of the Netherlands and an attempt to meet the needs of housing construction. New residential and public buildings, shops and schools, built on polder territories, were "restored" from the sea, drained and adapted for the building. The city plan was created in the studio, which was chosen on a competitive basis, as well as the best world architectures and designers were chosen for this goal. In October 2007, the city council concluded an agreement with the government to gradually settle the agglomeration.
