A very beautiful place, with a lot of palaces and old buildings and cafes and taverns. There is an Info point there for tourists with a nice lady ready to help you which is very useful. The whole downtown is underconstruction though

It is easy to see why this area was once known as the Paris of Eastern Europe. The atmosphere is delightful and fields restaurants and shops for every budget and appetite. Evenings are often cool, but crowded as hundreds turn out for their evening stroll.
