A beautiful historic city, that was fortunately not damaged much during the war. Plenty of choice of bars and restaurants, sights to see, and a short walk from the countryside. There are also beers from around 50 local breweries to try. We took a 25...More

You can easily understand why this is UNESCO listed. Wonderful place to visit, off the beaten track, seemingly with few foreign tourists.
