No point to go

Not so good restaurants. Some expensive shops. Shop called Made in aparaaditehas it’s totally like copy paste from Pinterest staff but crazy pice tags. Art studios are closed and most of house is...



A cool, industrial style place to hang

The place has intrquing history as an old soviet factory, and is now filled with contemporary restaurants, shops selling local products and events such as concerts, movies and fleamarket days...




Suosittelen lämpimästi ravintolaa. Palvelu oli hyvää, ruoka maittavaa ja tunnelma kiva. Erittäin hyvä hinta/laatu.
