Just along the road, one can see this monument commemorating the friendship forged between two countries after fighting during the WWII. Nothing much to see in this area except this monument. Worth stopping by for a few minutes.

But nowhere to stop and read the plaque or really take in all the tower had to offer. It's in the middle of a busy road.
