    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The building where there's a restaurant and hotel now used to be the castle of count Lazar Lukac. He had it built in 1820 and used it with his family until 1893.
    The surrounding's beautiful. There's a park in front of it where you can take a pleasant walk.
    The food's great and the service O.K., though sometimes slow because of the many people, usually schoolchildren, who come here on excursions.

    Water's liquid without colour, smell or taste. Well, not in these parts. You'll find out that it can be white or yellowish, with the smell of chlorine, and the taste of iron. Apart from that, there's nothing wrong about it. It's healthy alright.
