is not a small city, the dining scene is emerging slowly. There are a wide range of cafes and restaurants that serve local cuisine or European favorites like pizza, pasta, salads and burgers. Unfortunately, the city doesn’t have many bars, but we still managed to hand-pick some of the best. Take a look!
