Neeltje Jans is the most important place in the Netherlands.
The Waterland Neeltje Jans tell the story of the Big Flood of 1953, which took 1800 lives. In 1958 Delta Plan was created and introduced to the Dutch government in order to prevent future disasters like the Flood of 1953. It took almost 40 years to rise the dykes and to complete building the storm surge barrier. Take a day trip to the Neeltje Jans waterpark, which provides different activities such as Flood museum, Seals' pool, Water playground, and the 30 minutes movie about the unique Delta Projects.
