It is a pleasure to stroll around in the early morning, when locals get their exercise, or in the evenings and on holidays when it’s full of couples, families, and teenagers hanging out - worth checking out the scene. Buy some of the local sour cherry preserves that they sell in small cups to eat while you meander - delicious!... More

THE place to see and be seen. A stroll round the lake in the cool of the evening followed by glass or two of tea in the open air cafe is not to be missed.

It dates back to 3-4 centuries ago. An artificial lake, with many beautiful trees. A 5* hotel in walking distance. Don't miss riding boats in the lake. buffets and a restaurant are available. Just be careful of the birds over the trees :-) They may dirt your clothes or hairs. It is better to visit there at night.
