In the modern democratic society the human rights are claimed to be the supreme value and they are protected in all possible ways. This principle is valid also for the judicial system. People who have committed various crimes should not be deprived of the essential human rights even when serving their sentence. Sometimes, however, the conditions of imprisonment look even better than the life of average citizens. Here is the list of prisons where every convict will feel completely at home.
Vestre Fangsel in Copenhagen, Denmark, comes the first. It is one of the oldest prisons in Denmark and there no less than five-year sentence is served. However, due to the exclusive conditions of this place these five or more years can become pretty pleasant ones. The prison is equipped with fitness center, library, medical facility and even a shop where you can buy practically everything except alcohol. It is also possible to receive proper course of education while serving the sentence. The guards bear no weapon. The policy of the government is not to degrade the prisoners and make them suffer as it is done in lots of other countries, but to deprive them of liberty which is viewed as the measure of compulsory treatment. The level of crime in Denmark proves that this method actually works.
