  • Beautiful mediaeval town lots to see.I'm looking for the name of a shop selling a rearing bull sculpture made from bike parts, the chain was its spine and the legs were made of springs and nuts it also had an elephant I'm desperate to get it for his christmas The shop was off a square and had an area outside the shop with a low wall to right , inside sold ceramics I'd be forever grateful if someone can help
  • Good place to visit in old town. Interesting history and beautiful models of water ships in the museum.
  • Great old museum, very old artifacts, a must visit place!
  • Very interesting at the start, does get a bit repetitive after a while though...
  • the square in front of the museum was amazing.
