Was lacking Christmas decorations. Nowhere to been seen. Little boring. But in the summer it's a great place to walk and see some shops and restaurants!

Old town features some stunning architecture, massive brick churches, and a wide main drag lined with restaurants, shops, and bars. It's a truly beautiful glimpse of Old World Europe but has a vibrancy to it. There is a lot to see and do or just walk around.

The old town is pretty and along the river. Other than that it's dilapidated with broken buildings, graffiti etc. It's like a small version of Kraków old town but without the markets, stalls or anything else of interest. If you are going for cheap food and drink of good quality then it's a good place. I know from experience there... More

A lovely place to visit for a few nights break. Walking around and appreciating the museums, architecture and history of the old town. A quint place with a few restaurants and bars along the strip. Not somewhere to visit if you are looking for something really lively.
