Once we reach the old town we will see the Dome Cathedral (entrance), the Church of St. Peter, the Old medieval Castle, the house of Blackheads, the buildings of the old guilds, the Bridge of the Swedes, the Three Brothers, the Parliament and many other buildings converted into restaurants, pubs and souvenir shops.
