It's really hard to find info about how to come here. In theory the buses going to nearby cities could drop you at the crossing and you walk the 2.5 km. I suggest you try blablacar, which I used to get to the museum. Basically...More

We found it difficult to get any reliable information about the site. Noone could (or would?) tell us wether it's open or not. When we got there, we were the only guests. The whole day they had only 4 (four!) visitors! This is part of...More
