This mountain is very unique in shape. This face of the mountain is sharply curved and looks like huge potato or cucumber sliced by a giant animal (a dinosaur?). But it look also beautiful together with a small village just below.

The city is nice especially if you walk down towards the River Durane. But its center can have heavy traffic as in summer as many cars passing through this "gateway" town. It was calm in the middle of October.
