Holland's newest province, Flevoland, was created on land reclaimed in recent decades from the IJsselmeer, and officially inaugurated in 1986. The new polders cover some 1,800 sq. km (695 sq. miles), dotted with oddly integrated old villages that were once islands, and with modern towns like Lelystad. Straight roads run through its flat fields crossed by equally straight canals.
