    There is a huge park with a big pond and an animal garden and a museum inside.
    If you don't feel well to walk that long you can take a tour with a small train there April to Setember. It is worth to see black and white goats and deers there. If you would like to know about how we get HONEY , there is an answer there too.
    Children can ride a Ponny.
