No one think that a prison can float. But there are more than this! Not only in the Netherlands,but also in New York (the Vernon C. Bain Center), London and maybe even more around the globe.

“The fact that the Dutch Justice system was prepared to invest in a concrete caisson indicates their very strong faith in its functioning, safety and durability”. I am complete in accordance with the person post before us the picture in the web of the Zandaam prison.
