Start your visit in west and see all the shops for clothing and parfumerie. Then cross the line and you see a complete diffirent world. It's like a market with lots of small terraces and shops with interesting merchandise.

If you are at the old town, you must come to this spot. If you look east, the architecture is Ottoman. Look West and it is Austro-Hungarian.

From this spot, on this street, you can look in one direction and see the Ottoman influence and in the other direction you will see the Austria-Hungarian influence. Quite an interesting spot to stand and look around.

This spot marks the convergence of cultures of the east and west, and the architecture at this point shows stark contrast as you look in both directions.
