From California to Norway, from New Hampshire to Russia, the world boasts of an array of spectacular architecture from mystical places to luxurious prisons, which are not usually associated with beauty.
When you think of prison, I bet your thoughts are dominated by images of iron bars, dark hallways, sub-par food, and general overall dismay in the air. You can be forgiven to think that way, but not all prisons look like that.
10. California Prison, USA
This perhaps is America’s most luxurious prison. This facility started to charge inmates a whopping $155 per night to stay in unused jail. The prison decided to make use of this previously unused jail since it was built in 2000.
The jail is quite an upgrade from the average prison as prisoners get to enjoy various entertainment programs on a widescreen HDTV in addition to gaming tables, bathrooms, cells, beds, and showers.
This California prison can accommodate up to 96 prisoners, despite having just 54 beds.
The program, however, is only limited to those convicted of minor offenses who receive prior judicial approval.
9. Otago Corrections Facility, New Zealand
While its security measures are not taken lightly, Otago provides its inmates with comfortable rooms and attributes great significance to change through skill-building. Holding classes in light engineering, dairy farming, and cooking among other things, Otago strives to rehabilitate effectively.
