Zeeland, one of the most recognisable provinces of The Netherlands.
Formed by a deep river delta that ends up in the North Sea, many of the islands have grown together over time.
Not surprisingly, this province had to battle the rising sea and water for as long as it consists, with the notorious 1953 flooding as a tragic all time low.
Having cost nearly 2000 people’s lives, it was the trigger to start the most ambitious coastal defence plan; the famous Delta Works.
An intricate system of bridges, floodgates and newly created islands created an artificial new coastline that keeps the storm floods out and the inlands safe.
Having been named one of the seven modern world wonders, the Delta Works still attract a lot of tourists from all over the world.
Another example of Dutch ingenuity and engineering at its finest.
