Tatiana, sorted out accommodation for me on short notice which was really appreciated , I had a good comfortable nights sleep and early morning Coffey before I went back to the airport ! Thanks
It was a pleasant stay with Tatiana. Since it was a long weekend and there was no space in her house, she somehow managed to get a place for usat her daughter's place. We find the place very near to city center and it was very cosy and comfortable room. If i would like to visit again I will try to stay at her place
