  • It's too much for one day, it can't be done, there's too much to see. It's a really wonderful centre that amazed me, cleanliness is absolutely everywhere. Even if you just walk the streets, it's worth it, enjoying the atmosphere, having coffee and something good and just enjoying the beautiful city.

  • Many highlights and buildings, museums, statues. Downtown is big and it probably will take you a full day to see the attractions without going to far from the inner city.  more »
