Around the square you will find restaurants and taxi stop! Sometimes there are cultural events. This square is near main square but it is more quiet place where you can rest with wonderful fountain :)

Our Apartment was located on this small quiet square which is only a 2 minute walk to the main Market Square. There are a few nice restaurants and coffee shops.
