Nice place to take photos and walk around. Many tourists are there but i couldn't find a place to buy water or anything so it's only recommended for a short stop

We stopped in a large parking lot which was surrounded by several high rise buildings & it was explained what the buildings were. This is where they gather for celebrations. I didn't quite understand why they took us here.

Response from Leigh N |
When I went here in September we hired a classic car. Nice way to do it since it is more of a drive-by kind of place in my opinion. As far as cash, CUC is the only way to go. I had 500 Euro from a previous trip which made... More
