  • Afflicts only entrance fee. It is not particularly low for backpackers, and when obhodish' all paid attractions, the waist noticeably empty. On the other hand it is difficult to choose any one garden to visit, because they are different. The Palace there is a small, but quite refined. Garden Park soon, so you can take a break from the noise and hustle of the city.
