🏘️ AirBnBStudio apartment with fireplace -We loved this place it was a studio which wasn’t a part of a building, it was on the other side of the river, but still there were places for food and places to walk around. The bus and the tram were almost in front of it. The studio had everything that you need and it was a good spot for both work and stay at home feeling.

These are my most loved places, for the full overview check out the MAP.
