City of Almere

Almere, where building started in 1975, is the youngest city in the Netherlands and the second largest city in the Amsterdam Area. Located in the province of Flevoland Almere was built on land that was reclaimed from the sea in a feat of Dutch engineering. Now, more than 45 years later, the area has been developed into well-planned residential areas with parks, lakes, business districts, modern infrastructure and excellent transport connections. Almere is a great place to live and work in.
