Sculptor OLYA MURAVINA (Moscow) in Den Haag. Brilliant!
Sculpture of Olya Muravina (Moscow) in Galerie Noordeinde. Childish, smart and naive at the same time, they are touching.

beergarten in Den Haag
I was in Den Haag (The Hague) very short, about half a day and my knowlege about the city was shamefully minimal (international organisations of sort of International Court of Justice and UNO, etc.) I was very glad to find that it's the old city, start in Middle Ages and refreshed in layers of later ages. The modern Den Haag with its skyscrapers, glass and plastic grows organically and doesn't look eclectic.
I had a chance to be in Den Haag for a day. Being there for business, I seen the city briefly, no doubt it's much more multilayered that I could get in few hours. I'm glad to say that I liked it! I liked wide streets with clever traffic, feeling of respectable city (I know, sounds funny), lots of open space and air. I liked art galleries and parks there, cafes, faces in the street. I was very glad to find that it's the old city, begun in Middle Ages something and to see how organic and refreshing the modern Den Haag. Lovely. I got much more then expected.
What did I know about Den Haag? mmm... let me think. Not much, actually. The place of officials, various congresses and international organisations of sort of International Court of Justice and UNO. Right?
Den Haag is the old and new...
