Maybe in the past this was ok but now it is dirty, boring and seems completely inauthentic. The prices seem to be on the high side.

It was a nightmare and extremely expensive. I won’t recommend this place as it had hidden costs and won’t negotiate to lower the amount. Washroom was not clean and unsafe for local and foreign visitors.

such as Trotsky and great painters like Frida Kahlo
