We arrived just in time to get a table. In fact, had my daughter not excused herself for the moment, I would have offered to let another English speaking couple share our table with us. I didn't want to make that decision on my own. Sometimes Mother/daughter relationships can get sticky after more than a week of travel. Anyway, we... More

If I wouldn't have seen this spot on TripAdvisor I would've passed it without noticing it. Anyhow it is nice to see.

About 30 seconds to view it. Don't spend much more time than that to find it. The area around it is interesting. Did not go in. Maybe that would have made it worthwhile. Get a table at the corner restaurant and have a coffee and strudel and watch tourists looking at the roof and the street performers instead. Best apple... More

My wife and I stood in awe of this hidden treasure, a true golden moment. It also helped that we had a tour guide that explained the story behind it. Some to go and see. Should be on the must do list.

The golden roof is indeed a golden roof and that's really the whole attraction. It looks just like the photos and is in a perfect location of restaurants, tourist shops and hotels. The street actually has a few really interesting buildings - some so interesting that we actually walked past this one without noticing the first time. It's in the... More
