  • A really great city (also with prams). Small but nice. Each lane has any interesting features. The entrance doors and the door knockers are real eye-catcher. Also a gutter views of the countryside is very beautiful. The buses are very late.

  • Quaint historical town. Lonely somewhere less than people who live in the walls in the old town feel. Uncle's parking is free but it is donating us locate vacant and asked how much. Good if you pay 1 euro and thanks for keeping watch?
