The place is like heaven. The day we visited was snowing. There are many spas and parks. You can go on foot or bus. I'm pretty sure that on Spring the place could be like Eden. Don't miss it.

This island sits quietly in the middle of the river, and has so many different things to offer, sports grounds, a zoo, dancing fountains, pedal cars, restaurants, gardens. People go there to stroll, jog, play, eat - it's a delight.
