The Most Luxurious Prisons in the World.
When you think of prison, we are sure images of iron bars, gloomy corridors, poor food, and a general sense of despondency come to mind. But what if we tell you that this isn’t the case in all prisons? In fact, there are institutions around the world that are the polar opposite of what I just stated, despite being legitimate prisons. These legitimate prisons have so many amenities and facilities. Here are some of the most luxurious prison cells and institutions in the world.
Luxurious prison cells

This jail, which is located on Bastoy Island in Oslofjord, holds a little over 100 offenders who enjoy privileges such as tennis, horseback riding, fishing, and sunbathing within the prison complex.
