There are several things you will enjoy when visiting this place.
The first one is that you can have a nice walk near the sea. The promenade is more than four kilometres long. You can also take a bike as well

The second reason is Fortress of St Nicolas. It is a unique fortification system in the whole world. It was built for defence against Turkish invasion in the 16th century.
