Definitely a romantic stroll when you are on this bridge. For photography lovers is a wonderland as you can spend hours in the same spot just washing people or taking memorable shots.

Hi nikita g, You can indeed take any train anytime you want. But just at the weekends. If you buy a normal ticket during weekdays, you can be onboard only after 9:00 AM.
