    A small museum is on the second floor. Strikes, that everything is made by hand. Small details are simply staggering. Scenes from fairy tales, portraits, figures in full-length (Princess Diana and Michael Jackson), the houses of Parliament. There is a shop on the ground floor of marzipan sweets, Bought on trial several different candy. Really liked SÓS-KOCKA KARAMELLES (marzipan with a taste of salt-caramel)

    Unbelievable that they can do from marzipan. Lovely little museum and you can buy some and relax with some drink and cake. The village is beautiful, many little shops, clothes, souvenirs and handcrafted works.

    The food at the restaurant is delicious, but there are NO gluten free dishes and worst of all - the service is just the worst. They just want you to order, eat ASAP and get the hell out.
