^Only 12 (provinces)

What you seen on that map are municipalities. There are ~500 of those.

I live 10 km from the Waddensea! Nice place, like it. No busy life over there, only nature and small villages.

32 km, constructed between 1927 and 1933. It is part of a larger project called: Zuiderzee Works. It was an older plan to close the Zuiderzee, but after the Zuiderzeevloed 1916 it was for the protection very important for the Netherlands.

It had 2 major benefits:
-Short coast, which is easy to protect.
-It made reclaiming land easy.

Most reclaiming started after the "Afsluitdijk" had been finished. It was projected to reclaim more than 2000km2. 1650 km2 nowadays reclaimed.



Sometimes it is discribed as the precedessor or part of the even more impressive Delta Works (Which the American Society of Civil Engineers has declared to be one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World)

Haarlem is one of my favorite cities in the Netherlands, last time I was in Haarlem I even visited the building on the right ( Teylers Museum ).

Bytheway, the leading researcher at the Teyler Museum, was Lorentz and he was also the one who "invented" or researched the idea of the Afsluitdijk. (It's clear to me that my mind contains to many useless facts )

Well, Lorentz was indeed one of the greatest scientists this country ever produced.

another useless fact: Harlem NY was named after this city. Not surprisingly, since the dutch founded New York in 1628, when they bought the isle of manhattan from the indians. They called it Nieuw Amsterdam (New Amsterdam).
