  • Excellent tour, but covers only a small part of the remaining. Guide claims that cost of transport is not included.  more »
  • The museum is in renovations, but exhibitions can be seen in an alternate building. The customs part with the dolls in wax depicting how life was formerly in the cities of the country is the most interesting.
