Its so refreshing and calming, listening to the flowing water. Nice place to take a rest when you get tired walking.

The stream is a little green oases in the city which makes it pleasant to stroll along at night but unfortunately it also smells like sewer at certain places.

I went there at night and it´s very interesting. It has different figures during the stream, some historic, some modern, artistic and so on. It is very long, so you can decide where you end it.
