It is the center of the historic Old Town and has lots of things to see and do. There are statues, church, city museum and tower, restaurants, shops, and beautiful buildings around. There are several benches to sit down and rest here. Enjoy!

Nice square with fountain and benches to have some rest. I don't recommend the cafes but the winery there.

Well looked after, authentically rough round the edges augmented by 18th century grandeur . Good reference point to bleed out into the areas in old town. Can’t move for American tourists !

Barely 200 meters from St. Michael's gate, this seemed to be a posh Nemestie. Vast open space, high end eateries, Opera and the charm of the old town - it has all that one can ask for. This is not the place where you go,...More
