Favorite thing: I really enjoyed the installation in Rembrandt Square of "The Nightwatch" - a 3-dimensional realization of Rembrandt's masterpiece. A lot of love and effort went into given life to these figures. It's fun to walk amongst the good citizens of 17th century Amsterdam -- and their mascot, and their dog!

The sculptures were placed here in 2006. They are the work of Russian artists Alexander Taratnyov and Mikhail Dronov.

It's particularly interesting at night!
