Nothing really special here. It is in the city center and there are some really nice surrounding buildings and a small nearby park. But other than that this square isn't really anything special.

The square itself has nothing interesting, but it is really close to many local attractions. There are cathedrals right behind. The historical museum is also close. There are also a few small things to see, such as a huge thermometer and sculpture of a musician on the top of a building right across the street.

This is a good starting point for visiting the city; there is a few cathedrals, the metro and the Historical museum. The thermometer is also an easy rendez-vous point.

Depending on the time of year, it maybe entirely void of anything other than corrupt traffic police (GAI) or may be overrun by drunks on Beer Day. Christmas/New Years is a good time, as well as Easter. Some good nearby eateries if you can wedge yourself into an available spot. Too crowded with chinese & arabic university students from Karazin... More

Big square, with some shops around. It's in the very centre so you will probably struggle to avoid it ;))
