Had several short walks around the square on different days. Some days were very quiet as it was Easter and a lot of places were closed. But the other days were much more lively, with buskers and small musicians playing outside various venues.

There are many good restaurants in the square. And when you get out from the restaurant you may to seat on the bench and listen to street musicians.

This could have been built purely for tourists, but that's not a bad thing. It has all that you really would want to keep some lovely photos - great buildings, people who are dressed as historical characters, lovely views and scenery - and it's remarkably clean. The place itself was apparently rebuilt in the latter half of the 20th century,... More

We finished our walking tour here. We entered the square and I thought, "What a lot of empty space." There were a number of alfresco restaurants around the edges, a number of stalls selling flowers and plants and quite a number of artists displaying their finished paintings - many of them were very good.

It was cold and windy the day we visited (just about Spring but...), the architecture is fantastic, and the local vendors regaled us with history and geography. Had a coffee on the square, and contemplated life. It was a fine afternoon.

And at the end, there is a castle and Old Town market square with beautiful and colourful old buildings. Start you walk from a garden having world war memorial and reach to old castle. Enjoy time there and head... More
