The central square is the town's main public space for games, communication and relaxation. It's nice to walk here with children or relax after an exciting day. The square offers a wonderful view of the bell tower of Elijah's Church. And around the square you can find the main architectural attractions of the town: a fire department, a shopping arcade of the nineteenth century, the Church of the Archangel Michael, and the Local History Museum.
