Nieuwegein is in 1971 ontstaan uit de historische dorpen Jutphaas en Vreeswijk. Het stroomgebied van de Rijn, de Lek, de kanalen en de sluizen vormen de geschiedenis van het schippersdorp Vreeswijk. Zonder de rivier de Lek zou het dorp niet zijn ontstaan. In de vroege Middeleeuwen was de wijde omgeving een ontoegankelijk veenmoeras dat regelmatig onder water liep.
Bewoning was vrijwel onmogelijk behalve op de stroomruggen, oude zandbeddingen van de rivier. De Friezen bouwden in de 7e eeuw een handelsnederzetting aan de Lek: Frisionouuick oftewel Friezenwijk, later verbasterd tot Vreeswijk.

Nieuwegein is in 1971 arose from the historical villages Jutphaas and Vreeswijk. The basin of the Rhine, the Lek, the channels and the locks are the history of the skippers village Vreeswijk. Without the river the village not the leak would have arisen. In the early Middle Ages the area was an inaccessible bogs that regularly ran under water. Occupation was virtually impossible except on the power backs, old sand bed things of the river. The Frisians built in the 7th century a trade settlement on the leak: Frisionouuick or Frisians district, later corrupted to Vreeswijk.

Interesting history! I am glad you are able to put it also into English. Good reflections in the water, as well, to give a hint of what is on the other side.
