Schokland

Formerly an island in the Zuiderzee, this elongated strip of land was reclaimed from the sea in 1942 and is now surrounded by fields rather than water. Clues to the area's unique island past remain; Schokland being slightly elevated from its surrounding landscape, and its old waterfront wall remaining partly intact.
