Cool view and traditional wood buildings. The place is average and very cheap to enter. But in this area is the only place to visit.

I visit the resturant and museum. Museum much better to visit at the summer and not in the winter. Quite cool anyway but I can imagine a lot more activity in the summer. Resturant was very cozy and great food.
