A beautiful place totally smashed up by the retreating Germans. Rebuilt by the Soviets after WW2. The town has a pleasing scale and the water was 24C today so plenty of older swimmer. Plenty of boat trips.

Now a pretty yacht haven with cafes and bars etc. However, you can see the legacy of the Soviet era with submarine pens in the hillside opposite. There are also many traders sellinf trinkets from that time.
