We stayed 4 nights as part of our 2 month roundtrip in Eastern Europe. The location is about 7 kilometers from the centre, so choose wisely. We had a car, so that was no problem. We preferred a quiet area, and went also for the swimming pool. The pool is great, our kids loved it. The apartments are also very...
