If you like walking through green areas then this is a must do. Getting to understand how the city was built for defense is thrilling.

This old town wall from the time they built this city as a fortress gives a rich possibility to walk along the rim of the centre. And as the rampart has paths on both sides of the moat, on top, and on the sides there...More
