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.
