Spanish Literature Monument at Plaza de España | Madrid, Spain

I could not leave the Plaza de España without taking this photograph. The fountain at the feet of the sculptures was enlightened in gold which strongly contrasted the late evening along with the black night sky in Madrid. This contrast of colours and significance behind the postures creates a unique impression of what impacted the worldwide literature of the art of Cervantes.

Cervantes monument in the Plaza de España | Madrid, Spain

This monument was built in the middle of Plaza de España, in the centre of Madrid on one side of the Gran Via. During the day and in the early evening, this area was crowded with tourists. In the late evening though, more locals would be passing by, so the square would be considerably quiet – perfect for shooting photos and viewing the Statue of Cervantes at a closer distance.

Gefion Fountain | Copenhagen, Denmark

The wishing well is officially the biggest monument in Copenhagen and tells a story about the country’s mythology with its sculptures. The Fountain shows a scene, in which the Aesir Damsel Gefion cuts a trench in between the Island of Zealand and Sweden with her plow, which is led by her three sons who had been turned into bulls. She cuts Zealand off the mainland forever and created the biggest Island in Denmark.

The Main Square of Kraków (Rynek Główny) is the central element of the city and no tourist will ever visit Kraków and don’t walk on this square. On this photo you can see the Kraków Cloth Hall (Sukiennice) with the Adam Mickiewicz Monument in the foreground. The sun just made its way over the roofs and throws the town’s silhouette on the walls of the Cloth Hall.
