Ark van Noach (Noah's Ark)Today Noah's Ark is arriving at Rotterdam. Not the original one, of course, but the replica of the Ark built by the Dutch building contractor named Johan Huibers. He started to build the Ark in 2005 and finished it this year. Huibers is not expecting a new flood, but is using the vessel to spread the story of the Bible, especially to children.

The Ark is 70 meters long, 9.5 meters wide and nearly 13 meters high. It is built on a pontoon and can be moved with a tug boat. In the Ark is an expositionarea where the story of Noah is told. On board are also several live animals, such as lams, goats and chicken. Currently the Ark is travelling all around Holland visiting several places. She has arrived this morning at the Spoorweghaven, Rotterdam where she will stay, also during the World Port days at 7,8 and 9 September, until the end of October.
