Coolest Prison Ever (If You're Gonna Drop Your Soap...)

Illustration for article titled Coolest Prison Ever (If Youre Gonna Drop Your Soap...)

If you have criminal persuasions in life, whatever they may be, might we suggest you relocate your place of residence to Austria? The reason for this; Austria happens to be the geographic location of the most awesome (to our knowledge) prison in the world. Check out The Leoben Justice Centre, Steiermark, in the gallery below.

The prison not only houses cells for criminals (duh), it also packs in a complex of courts, too. We are guessing only the biggest and baddest of bad guys get to stay here, so you are probably better off committing crimes at home. This will ultimately save you the hassle of stealing money for an airline ticket, which would eventually lead to abject disappointment once you arrive in Austria/are imprisoned in a shithole. Still, I wonder if the Leoben's showers area is as inviting as the foyer... [New Launches]

@jmdecombe: I've known a few people who lived on the streets for many years, and they've determined that going to jail is not an option. Sure, it sounds like three hots and a cot and all's well, right? Wrong. It means being bullied around by harder guys that go through the system (without the escape routes of the streets), being robbed of whatever personal affects they have left and being mistreated by pushy guards or cops. I'll bet that a great deal of homeless people, even the ones that are deficient would rather live on their own terms (for a lack of a better situation) than prison.

I agree about the pen pals though. I've watched specials on inmates that ended up learning how to train animals, some that have taken courses to become veterinary assistants or veterinarians.
