Zierikzee

Zierikzee is a small town dating back to 1248 and is located in the Dutch province of Zeeland.

In the early 1950's Zierikzee was damaged by catastrophic floods in which many people lost their lives. It is now protected by massive dykes built as a part of the Delta Works.

The Delta Works are a number of major construction projects that were built between 1950 and 1997 in the southwest of the Netherlands to protect the land from the North Sea.

The American Society of Civil Engineers has declared the works to be one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World.
