Rokin

A statue of Queen Wilhelmina, a work by T. van der Pant, stands here at the end of this basin, which in turn is the end of the Amstel. The broad street, which is extended by the Damrak, used to be the old mouth of the Amstel but was filled in in 1936. Although modern buildings spoil the architectural unity on the Rokin, some facades by Vingboons (numbers 91 and 141-147) do survive. Cigar lovers should not miss the Hajenius shop (numbers 92-96), which has been open since 1826.
