Oostduinkerke - Belgium - 18 July 2021 -- Horseback fishers returning home crossing the coastal tram line “Kusttram”. The five centuries old tradition of catching shrimp on horseback is only practised on the beaches of Oostduinkerke. Horseback fishing is so rare, that UNESCO awarded it a place on their Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. — PHOTO: Juha ROININEN / EUP-IMAGES
