I know this area since 2010. But now it's completely changed, everything working, very clean and elegant, totally renovated and closed to the traffic. There are also a lot of good restaurants, pubs and beer bars.

The square and museum desperately need EU money spent on them. The nearby promenade and beach are excellent. Better signage and information for tourists (e.g. buses) would help. That said, it is vibrant, exciting and rediscovering its previous confidence and glory!
