    Spui - street of the urchin

    The Urchin

    Once home of the Provos who used to dance madly round the statue to show their rebellion but it is now thought by some to be the cultural heart of the city. Various street markets turn up, including books (Fridays) and art (Sundays).

    Het Lieverdje, In the 60ies...

    Het Lieverdje, In the 60ies this was the symbol of the Provo's.

    The Provo-movement was in fact the first radical movement in the Dutch Society. It was founded in the sixties.These young provocateurs were determined to attack the establishment. For some time this statue which was a gift of an American Sigaret brand was the meeting point for an anti-smoke campaign.

    A great place for peace and quiet. A bustling square that is still very peaceful. You will find the Amsterdam Historic Museum and Begijnhof nearby...great coffeeshops in the area as well. Nice benches to take a break from the window shopping.

    Stroll the stands at the art market

    Will you find the next Rembrant or Vermeer? Probably not but, it's fun to walk the art market on Sunday.

    Great fun for a few hours.
