  • The old town is full of imperial palaces. There are many parks in which you can relax after long walks. The Metro is well connected but I suggest to turn it all on foot.

  • One of the most beautiful city centres I have seen. Overflowing with shops, historical buildings, attractions and places to eat. There are horse carriages taking people through the city! :)
