This jumble of 14th- and 15th-century architecture with its medieval walls, needling spires and twisting, cobblestone streets is also the site of many of the city's important historic attractions and museums including the House of the Brotherhood of the Blackheads, St. Catherine's Guild and the 15th-century Guildhall that now houses the History Museum.

A visit to the old town is highly recommended. Views from the city walls are amazing. Lots of small traditional places to eat and drink. Best area to buy all your souvenirs, including crystal and Amber. Should give the tourist train a miss, not worth...More
