    A very trendy area with very good local to eat or drink. There are many terraces. Many young people at night and day people of the city for eating.

    Once on this small street walked the tram. Its rails are still there, under the recently laid stone pavement (it replaced the asphalt, which is concealed under a Rails earlier). Once there were villas and apartment houses. Today it all came into decline, but still retains the once having the area charm. On this street there are many cafes and restaurants, in its northern part of the street changes name and becomes at the Lycée St. Michael (Michael)-the concentration of pubs and bars, the main influx of visitors are experiencing closer to midnight. Many institutions are so small that they fit the bar counter-tusjat clients on the street:)
