  • Beautiful historical square in the very center of the city, and its tourist center. Around you can find many shops and restaurants. The center sometimes hosts various entertaining activities. And even one museum: Museum of City History. In combination, this building is also a city hall.
  • Old world charm with beautiful cafes and lovely food. The square gives a very good and fun filled vibe. Worth a visit.
