Great location for photoshoots. So many varied and interesting back drops. Can be quite crowded though so a few extra hands to watch over equipment is must.

This is a great place to visit. The size is cozy, Ask to see the assembly hall of the old Raathaus and visit the old Cafe at the corner built in art noveau style.

Some nice old buildings to photograph. But that is it. Do not expect great shopping or good food in this area. Watch out for muggers.

A bit busy, difficult to park. Too many jaywalkers around to enjoy the place. Great buildings around with lots of history.

Walking at Church Square is like being taken into another era. The vintage buildings and history of what took place around there, is still lingering in the air
