Its a loverly place but the majority of the houses were closed. The ones that were open, the people weren't inclined to converse with you at all.

Good place in the old city to have some light lunch (soup with tasty black bread) and good coffee with desserts.

The guy at the Tourist Bureau told me 2 hours would be enough time here, I spend over 4 hours wandering the exhibits. Do talk to the people working there I gained a lot of insights.
