    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is one place in the main street that is only designed for newly-weds' good luck and well-being.
    It is in front fo the district registry office.
    You can see two big spruce trees there.
    I was surprised to see them in the chestnut-tree alley.
    My local friend explained to me that they had been planted on purpose for newly-weds' photo sessions.
    No other people use those trees for a photo session.
