The island of Schokland in the Noordoostpolder is not surrounded by the sea anymore.
Old map of the Zuyder Sea.
Since the island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, there are several ingenieus interactive boards that tell some interesting stories.
Part of the rebuilt village with narrow houses close to each other.
The often rough sea is now a green and yellow site of emptyness and some modern farmhouses.
