Charming place, be careful of the illegal taxis though if you don't want to be ripped off! Live concerts in the evening when we were there.

It is a good place to stop and drink coffee after a long walk in the old town. Even in the evening when many people go to clubs and restaurants the square isn't crowded. I recommended reach by stairs to the St. Anne's Church tower, because there you can see the whole view of Castle Square.

An important square, located next to the castle, lined with historical buildings and fortification walls. Often one finds live music here along with other performers.

Walking from the old square to Castle Square, i was very impressed. Luckily it was relatively quiet. There are several restaurants and places to sit and just relax. Really gave you a feeling of being in eastern europe. Lovely.

Quaint, Best early in the day when there are not as many people. It was very windy but there was a good view of the local scenery and a few shops to purchase souveneers
