This city's Old Town is tidy and compact. It's not the grandest, biggest or best Old Town in Europe, but it does have plenty of character and many fantastic photo opportunities. It's relatively small and can easily be covered in under two days. Certainly worth...More

Very nice with plenty of old buildings. Great place to walk and explore the city. You can also enjoy a cup of coffee in the many side walk cafes available. Try staying in a hotel nearer to the centre, as there where the soul is.
