    Interesting place named after one of the biggest clothes companies in Croatia (specialized in men suits). Hmm..... or maybe not? The waterpark looks like a nice place to relax.

    Sounds like Halifax, Canada. They have a Meri Päivät too. You see tall ships and parties are held all over.

    The beauty of many places is not in how vivid they are, but in their tranquility...

    I agree, sometimes a quiet place can have its charmes :-)
