Lovely gardens and buildings which were renovated for sharing an amazing collection of books which were rescued from past neglect. Unusual historical touch in a country were everything seems ultra-modern and high-tech.

Sorry but I am not familiar enough with the destination, one of the reasons being that I was driven there by friends and not by taxi! Good luck and have a nice stay!
