  • On Rembrandt Square, in the middle of which stands a monument of this painter. A few years ago, a figure was set before him referring to his most famous painting "Night Guard". It is a place where tourists are still photographed. The square is one of the many places in Amsterdam night life.

  • Located in Rembrandt Square, rembrandt night guard is represented by a three-dimensional bronze statue. 3D shin. It was more powerful than I thought, and it was worth seeing. One of the statues in Amsterdam is worth seeing.

  • The Night Watch is a lovely collection of bronze figures that represent the various characters of Rembrandt's masterpiece from the Rijksmuseum. They are situated directly in front of the Rembrant monument in the middle of Rembrandtplein. These are the works of Russian artists Mikhail Dronov and Alexander Taratynov (2006). They are detailed and nice to view up close. Placed in front of the Rembrandt monument, it is as if the Old Master is peering downward, inspecting the figures that make up his masterpiece. It is a nice scene, one that I've enjoyed viewing during visits to Amsterdam in recent years. Note, you'll likely find may other visitors walking around and taking pictures of The Night Watch statues. If you want unobscured pictures, best to come early in the morning before too many other tourists arrive on the square.
  • Beautiful there I can enjoy, again was a little less but that we are going to catch up
