Be careful of anything off of the main floor if your back is not without issues. Even the main floor looked cramped. Great production was kind of lost in the brutal experience of sitting for two hours without legroom of any kind.

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the
