What an amazing 1847 architecture and building, surrounded by trees roses and beautiful jars. We loved it. Close by don't miss Sts. Konstantin and Elena" Church... this is the most beautiful one in the old town. The outside and the interior has great painting and light. We happen to be there for a Christening.. Merveilleux!

It's very nice, has a lot of artifacts you can look at and it really gives a good idea of what life looked like 200 years ago I must say, however, that the information about all rooms is not that much and had it not been for the guided tour, I would have...
