  • The monument itself is so well known, shown on countless postcards, albums and photos, that difficult to write something about it. The most interesting is that on summer Sunday afternoons is the backdrop for great piano concertos. Then it is worth to come, Hare place on the many benches or on the grass and get carried away with life music and other works of this composer.
