Robben Island is located in Table bay, South Africa, approximately 10km from the coast of Cape Town . For more than 400 years it used to be a symbol of exile, isolation and oppression. Robben Island was a home or expatriates, political prisoners and criminals. In the period from 17th to 20th centuries it was a prison, hospital for socially unacceptable groups and military base. In apartheid times it became internationally known prison of political prisoners. After the fall of apartheid it became a symbol of a triumph of democracy and freedom of human spirit over racism. From 1999 Robben Island is listed in the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage List.
