Many residential areas rich in greenery or with a view of the Nieuwe Waterweg are available in IJsselmonde. The area gives the impression of being quite young, but finds have been made of fishing, hunting and agriculture from 2500 BC. The name Islemunda dates back to 1072. The salmon fishery had its heyday until the 19th century. Today it’s an ideal environment for people who want to live quietly near the city.
