  • Go long ... Very much... Sometimes the road is straight nashjoptyvaet "turn back", but the persistence of desire to see the city from above "WINS! Very beautiful Vista of the city and the Bay, the beautiful panoramic shots. Honestly, I think that in the summer there is much better than at the beginning of spring)

  • The statue is very big. You can get to it by walking about 1km up to the top of the mountain, it's not very far. There's also a burning fire that never extinguishes.  more »
