Today: what to expect when entering the Royal Palace in Amsterdam:
A grand staircase, knights hall and elaborate world maps in marble (top)? Wrong!

Built as the Amsterdam city hall, the very first room behind the entrance is the ‘Vierschaar’ (Foursquare) tribunal room where criminals were sentenced to death. Lavishly decorated with scenes of doom of course (bottom).
