Spotlessly clean main street - but avoid the crowds and arrive before 10 a.m. to be able to get close to the buildings.

The old town is very lively, especially in summer. It should be visited both during day and night, since its not the same perception. I loved it during nights. There are constantly birds flying over and the sound they create is really lovely.

If there is time, I would highly recommend finding a nice cafe facing onto the Stradun where you could sit under the shade of an umbrella and eat breakfast, watching people go by or reading a nice book before you start your day of sight-seeing. There is a man there on weekends with lots of parrots! Don't take a picture... More

Wear good shoes as the cobbles are very slippy. A real tourist place during the day and a trendy place full of youngsters at night.

Even at busy times, it's not so crowded that you cannot enjoy a walk along the Stradun - buy an ice cream, step into local art galleries, buy a souvenir, or pop into a restaurant, or café on the numerous side streets and just sit back and 'people watch'

Historic pretty street with lots of restaurants leading off into the side streets - every one seems to have a staff member trying to entice you in which gets a bit tiresome to say the least . Modern shops not in keeping with the historic setting but others obviously liked them as they were busy !

Wide clean street - people watch, have a coffee, buy an ice cream It leads from the pile gate main entrance down to the old port (or nearly) Yes it's touristy but I was a tourist too Lots of interesting side streets all the way along, but I found...
