Beautiful place that will bring you peace if you allow it. It's near the citadel, definitely worth a visit if you're in the neighbourhood.

Firstly, tripadvisor shows garden in a werkelele place, but it's not! This garden is few minutes from cytadela. Honestly recommend to make a short walk to this place. There was not many people, so I think it's not a popular place.

2007, 2009, 2013, and 2016. This place I found it by mere chance when wandering around as a tourist in 2007. I was deeply touched when I saw for the first time this timeless representation of humanism, in art. Let yourself be pulled by the...More
