It is mainly a commercial street, with small and cozy shops, cafe's, pubs. The buildings, almost decayed, were refurbished with the aim of keeping the old style, of more than a century. They...

I'm not sure if it's the recent economic downturn but there are lots of empty buildings and shops in the area. There are some gorgeous old buildings but a fair number are crumbling wrecks. One part of the area is clearly devoted to pubs and clubs but there are also several excellent restaurants and wine bars. There are also some... More

Explore the Old Town, well worth the effort. Watch out for police patrolling on Segways! If you are an architecture buff, make sure you look in the little side streets, a lot of the "social realist" rubbish, hides some real gems/
