Beautiful city, light festival was interesting and light-full. A lot of lights on the houses, hotels, streets and shops. Very nice Christmas atmosphere (but keep in mind there is no Christmas markets like in Germany). Iceskating of a good quality (unfortunately weather conditions were not very good so we didn’t want to skate during the heavy rein).
