  • Interesting structure but not much to see and do here. Can only view the ground floor and inside is a city photo gallery with some nice pictures. Better visited from outside to appreciate the beautiful architecture.
  • It's an absolutely beautiful building. Really nice place to sit and relax. The history and the architecture of the building is amazing. Although it is surrounded by many tall buildings, it is easily identifiable and any local is willing point you in the right direction. Highly recommend visiting.
