With only one full day to look around, the thing that stood out for me as most unique was the nuclear bunker built into the castle hill. So, after visiting a bike shop and picking up a new pump with a pressure gauge, and being convinced to let them rebuild my rear wheel with a brand new rim and spokes, I went up to the castle hill and took a look around the majestic castle city before heading underground.
The bunker was pretty remarkable, the tour taking us through 1 km of the 10 km of caverns below the castle hill
In another section of the cave complex, there is a labyrinth of dwellings dating back to medieval times, and now a maze puzzle as well as historic site for tourists.
In the evening we went out to a pub for a friend of Peter's leaving party, to go to Estonia as part of the Erasmus student exchange programme. I enjoyed the ambience of the open-air pub, although was very miffed I missed the veggie burger and we had to make a midnight stop for a falafel durum on our way home.
