Julieta / Juliet

Passeio de bicicleta por Munique.

 

Bike ride around Munich.

The bronze statue of Shakespeare’s heroine from Romeo and Juliet was a gift from the city of Verona in 1974.

 

She’s on the southern side of the Altes Rathaus (Old Town Hall). There’s another Juliet across the Isar River on Shakespeare Platz, and of course there’s one in Verona as well.

 

In Verona you’re supposed to touch Juliet’s breasts for a chance at undying love.

Here you’re meant to place some flowers in her hand. I’m sure she appreciates both treatments.
