Most of the wooden houses, built in the second half of the 19-early 20 centuries (at least so told us), this time came the second flowering of the city. At this time the town became popular as a resort. In the Center there is the Castle, near the Town Hall. On the streets of many shops with souvenirs and local crafts, mostly made of wood.
