The village / Small city in the Netherlands, in the province of Flevoland, in the Noordoostpolder region. In the summer especially a tourist place with visitors from all over the world. In the winter mainly a fishing village. In urk there is a lot of support for the Christian religion.
Until 1939 Urk was an island in the IJsselmeer. After that time it was reclaimed and became part of the province of Flevoland. No longer an island but the culture has partly remained. That is why there is a huge amount of space for people with a boat or even a huge sailing ship.
Urk actually has everything you could wish for, for example, we have 2 beaches with fresh water (not salt water) for swimming in the sea, we have discos, we have nice restaurants and all in the harbor area.
Coastal towns usually have a culture of many tourists, so I myself (klaas kramer) went on vacation in Croatia near the village of Split, which is also a coastal town. Funny to see that it has many similarities with Urk. Coastal towns are cozy.
