Here’s Why Monaco’s Luxurious Prison is Most Likely Better than Your House
We bet if we ask you about imagining a prison, your response would most likely describe a dimly-lit structure with no windows, beds made of steel with the thinnest-possible mattress, an undesirable stench, and of course very bland food.
While you would be correct in assuming all of this, since most prisons in the world are more or less fitting of this description, there is one prison in Monaco that would make you want to move there.
The Monaco Factor
There is something about Monaco that makes it very special, apart from the fact that the country is at number two on the list of smallest countries in the world. Since land is in such scarce amount, buying property in Monaco can be an extremely expensive affair, with 90 sq. ft. of land being sold for around a million dollars, making it perhaps the most expensive real estate offer in the entire world.
And of course, the only people who can afford to live in Monaco are those who already owned land before it became so expensive or those who are millionaires/billionaires. This wealth is apparent by the luxurious cars that many people choose to drive in the country, with the streets filled with the likes of Lamborghinis or Ferraris.
Although these cars are known for their impressive top speeds, Monaco has a speed limit of 31mph in most if not all areas, which limits their owners from using these cars to their full potential.
What Makes Monaco So Special?
You must be wondering why all these rich people prefer to live in Monaco. Apart from the fact that living in Monaco has become synonymous with being rich (which is not what we can say about many other famous regions in the world, such as New York), there are many other factors which make Monaco an attractive locality.
Apart from the fact that Monaco has some of the most gorgeous hotels in the entire world, the climate of the country which comes from the French Riviera offers enough attraction to keep even the most wanderlust souls at bay. From a more pragmatic perspective, the country offers tax benefits to the very rich of the community, thereby offering more incentive for people with a lot of money to make Monaco their home.
A Recent Hike
Prices of the real estate in Monaco were not always this high. According to reports, within the past ten years or so the real estate market prices have multiplied twofold, which is mostly due to the negligible crime rate of the country. This low crime rate is due to the many CCTV cameras installed in public places. However, even getting caught and jailed in Monaco is not as bad as it is in other parts of the world.
The Gorgeous Maison d’Arret Prison
With a glorious view of the Ligurian Sea, the Maison d’Arret, a prison in Monaco, is located at a distance of just 2500 feet from the country’s palace, where the Prince resides. The prison itself has a total of four cell blocks, divided according to gender and age.
In addition to this, there is a gorgeous yard, a chapel for praying, a kitchen, and also a gymnasium for all your workout needs. Prisoners are expected to do their own laundry, and hence three separate laundry rooms are made available to them. For some mental workout, a library, as well as a computer lab, can both be found in the facility.
