Except that I kind of want to keep that secret, it’s not overly full of tourists and I’m afraid of spoiling it!

The market hall, we managed to return earlier when it was open – more on the wonderful interior soon

Hannah and I found it a beatuiful, fascinating city to get lost in and we’re already plotting how to get back there for longer – we only had one full day. We had no idea there would be so much to do, or so much unexpected grandeur! It was also a suprisingly good shopping city, and a lot cheaper than Vienna where we spent today.
