On the surface a post-communist city covered with everyday greyness, but what lies beneath the surface is pure magic. And we’re not talking about a Disney-like fairytale, it’s more like an urban fantasy novel. It’s just like an evil wizard cast a spell and hid all the places from the sight of the everyday Joe.
There is a whole different city underneath that what the bare eye sees. You follow the white rabbit and enter a backyard to discover the real veins of the city – adopted basements & lofts, hidden yards, crumbling sheds, small specialized shops and vivid life, which you won’t witness anywhere else. Once you discover it, you know it has always been there. But hey, there is a spell to break. So c’mon and see it for yourselves.
