The Center of the City.

Since 2 years ago we have a brand new city centre. The name of the city centre is Stadshart. There are many stores like toy stores and clothes stores. We call them Bartsmit and H&M. Our City mall is not just a normal city mall because it is not build on the ground. The whole City Mall is build about 30 metres above the ground. When you walk in our City Mall you walk about many hills of concrete. For people with a wheelchair ore having a baby it isn’t a pretty journey walking in the City Mall. For older people is the same problem. Other pretty thing is that they are many parking spots beneath the City Mall, but the parking spot are very expensive.

Places to go out in Almere,
Almere there arent many places to go out, mostly older people take the train to Amsterdam and spend their evening there.
That is because in Amsterdam there is much more to do in the evening. The most important / populair places to go out in almere are:
- NoX (This is now closed)
- Men at Work
- President
- Get Down (Cafe)
- Wow Under
- Mambo (Wangster place)
And thats it,
thats why people often go to Amsterdam when they're spending their evening outside.
