very good!!!
Djurdevac is a town that satisfies the whole family. We visited here with my kids and they could not get enough of the lush surroundings, especially in the parks. They always stayed outdoors and it was a relief to see them not interested in screens.
There are plenty of fun activities in this town's nightlife. There are some upbeat pubs that sell nice cocktails and cheap beers. The meals are very delicious, especially the baked meat, vegetables, and fries. I highly recommend it.
My buddies and I had a great time in this town. Visiting the art galleries was what I loved the most. The valuable art pieces and adorable paintings took my breath away. I bought some replicas at good prices.
I have been visiting this town for the last 3 years. I mostly spend time in the family-owned libraries with some rare books found here only. It's always relaxing to enjoy a classical book in the old-fashioned libraries. I look forward to my next visit.
We came with my family for our summer vacation and it still remains one of our best trips. We particularly loved the hotels we stayed in which had hot tubs,saunas, board games, and indoor pools. By the end of our stay, we were really refreshed.
It was a very fascinating trip when I visited this town. I was left in awe when I visited the majestic cathedrals. Their unique towers and huge domes left quite an impression on me. It was worth the trip.
