The deepest impression of Andersen is the short story of a drop of sewage. It is said that countless bacteria in the sewage bite each other, but this is only a drop in a pool of sewage, and the sewage will eventually flow to the ocean. The fairy tales he wrote are basically tragic endings. When I was a child, I didn't like Andersen's fairy tales. On the contrary, I liked to listen to Grimm's fairy tales where the princess and the prince are happy together. After I grew up, I slowly understood the glowing foam on the sea.
A landmark building in Hagen, a must-see place
This monument stands in tribute to the Hans Christian Andersen, the author and writer of universally loved fairy tales！The monument features a larger than life bronze sculpture of Andersen surrounded by smaller sculptures of characters from his fairy tales, including “The Snail and the Rosebush”. The sculpture depicts Andersen as a man in middle age (I think), although it’s kind of hard to tell because sculpture depicting Andersen and his clothing is smooth and almost devoid of texture.This monument can be found in Hviezdoslavovo square along with many other monuments in the square. It’s worth a visit if in the square, especially if you want to experience the halcyon days of your youth
