We loved this apartment. It is not even a block off of Sovietska St. - the walking street. You can see it in the last photo. There are two balconies and the entire apartment was light and bright. Of course, had we known that we were only going to be there for two nights, we might not have moved. Well..it was good while it lasted!
We found lots of great restaurants on the walking street. Our favorite was Cake. The atmosphere was nice and the food was great. We ate there a total of three times during our two downtown stays. There is also a Pizza restaurant, Del Torro, that is good and the Dixie BBQ - where they had iced tea! Above the Dixie BBQ, there is a night club and, evidently the festivities make it downstairs to the restaurant at times because there is a small stage with a pole there - if you know what I mean. A new restaurant, Burger Club opened while we were there, but we didn't get to try it. It is a counter service restaurant decorated like an ice cave.
There is also an open market with nothing but flowers. Beautiful!
Will post some more Alex photos and photos of the current apartment in the next post.
