Now You Can Spend the Night in a Luxury Prison (16 pics)

Posted in Arts » Design 1 Mar 2013   / 4415 views

The worst prison in the Netherlands has been converted into a luxury hotel offering guests the experience of being a criminal from $160 per night. Het Arresthuis was a prison for almost 150 years before the prisoners were moved elsewhere in 2007. I definitely wouldn’t mind spending a night here.

Cube Houses from the Netherlands (13 pics)

Posted by Xaniel in Arts » Design 17 Aug 2012   / 5684 views

These unusual buildings were designed by architect Piet Blom. Several dozens of such cube-shaped houses called Kubuswoningen were built in the Dutch towns of Rotterdam and Helmond in the midlle of the ‘70s. The total area of each house is around 100 square meters (1075 sq. ft.), though about a quarter of the space is unusable due to angled ceilings. In 2009 several cubes were converted into a hostel.

The Best Moments from World Cup 2010 (114 pics)

Posted in Pictures 12 Jul 2010   / 14042 views

Yesterday was the World Cup final match between Spain and Netherlands. For the first time in their history, Spain won! Congratulations. For some people it was even not that big news, because  octopus Paul aka "octopus oracle" predicted Spain's victory in their 2010 World Cup final soccer match against Netherlands by choosing a mussel, from a glass box decorated with the Spanish national flag instead of a glass box with the Netherlands flag. Paul had correctly picked Spain as winner against Germany in the semi-final match.

In this post, you’ll see the best moments from this World Cup as well as the celebration ceremony for winners.

I don’t know how it caught fire, but it burned almost completely. It happened somewhere in Netherlands. It feels like there was a tendency among Lamborghinis to catch fire, like with this one in Greece.

Netherlands are a very interesting country. They make plenty of bizarre creative stuff like for example this ‘Trash Temple.’ The temple is situated in an old neighborhood in the Rotterdam port area. It is 7m high, 25m long and 10m wide. Temple of Trash was built with 100 tons of pressed bales of PET bottles.
I’d like to see it one day!

Each of us has a “fetish” room at home that we love too much.
There may be a disorder or it can be super clean and tidy, but we love it the way it is and don’t like any changes.
In Holland, some guys decided to play a joke on one of their friends who went away for the weekend.
They have completely changed his room. But how? )))

The incident happened in Netherlands. An old lady on her little Fiesta crashed into a building. There was a lot of noise and smoke, but nothing serious. The reason is very simple and common for this type of accident - the old lady accidently accelerated instead of pushing the brake pedal …The guy that you’ll see in the post helped the old lady to get the car out of the building and he even repaired its wheel.

A coffeeshop is a place where the sale of cannabis and hashish for personal consumption. Nevertheless, there are strict regulations and the police control their activity.
Before you buy such a cake already loaded with a "magic potion" or buy you something to smoke, you will be warned about the side effects and will be asked not to smoke a lot.
Each coffeeshop is unique; there are no two of them alike.
Take a little photo tour to Amsterdam coffeeshops after the jump.
