Bergen op Zoom is a small city in the south western part of the Netherlands.  I have visit BoZ on several occasions for work and below are some images from a visit on July 21st, 2013 when I had a little more free time to explore the town.

The Gevangenpoort

The Gevangenpoort (Prison gate) dates from the 14th century and is one of the few remaining examples of a Dutch city gate as it would have appeared in the middle ages.  It was later used as a prison and is now a museum.
