Stay away from the modern buildings to find strange gems in the backyards.

  • When angels cry

    Originally built in the 14th century, not even the holy building was spared during the attacks of WW2. The exterior reconstruction is based on 400-year-old drawings.

    The pool at 44th floor offers exceptional views of the city, being the highest indoor swimming pool in Europe.
