When we've been walking around it there was virtually nobody, no people, no gas, very quiet. I can't say anything about this architecture - it's just nice. Overall nice place. + there is a trading house underground and a few other places behind it, so definitely check it out! Enjoy!

The space around the Akimat House is filled with the parked cars! The beautiful lanes are all busy with vehicles. Police cars are also there, catching the drivers who are not allowed to park there. Not really nice.

Building and its surroundings are very intresting. The place is huge, there is so much space arround and the buildings are monumental. Its worth visiting especially if you are intrested in architecture.
