Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year

Customer Travel Tip: Wear flat shoes

Liked: It's an interesting city and it is easy to walk around and get lost in Old Town. Plenty of things to do to keep you entertained on a tight ass budget. Food is really nice and cheap, and so is the alcohol.

Disliked: Just be careful with the roads and footpaths, the cobblestones are uneven which adds to the charm of the city but can trip you up especially if you are clumsy/ inebriated.
