“You mean that conservative corner of the country?!” is often a response you get when you tell people you live in Zeeland. It is clear that our province does not have the best reputation among the Dutch provinces. Next to its small cities and towns, excessive amount of water and many German tourists, it is also often associated with having a strict Christian community.
The Statistic Netherlands organization estimated that in 2010 around fifty percent of the population had no religion, forty percent was Christian, around seven per cent was Muslim and some three percent had another religion.
