  • The movie is quite interesting and if you are a photographer, or just interested in the history of photography, you will love it. However, we expected to see more photographs of the town.

  • This place is an incredibly well preserved time capsule with an amazing collection of items that belonged to the family. You can literally feel the history here. The museum offers an “electronic guide” in English and some other languages. Absolutely recommended if you're interested in photography!
  • If you want to touch the history, this is the place for you. The house-museum of the photographer, almost preserved in its original form. I want to come back here more than once!
