Just this... insecurity place! There are a lot good and cheap restaurants, clubs and pubs, but there is "dark". You can't see policemen however you can see so many homeless asking money, drinking and "smoking". So bad place!

Starting from late afternoon there are plenty of activities for families. Cinemas, theatre, planetarium, art expositions. There are always some free activities for families with kids. During the night, this place is crazy. Tones of bars and discos.
