This Art Nouveau town was interesting to walk around. The Art Nouveau Centre, which was entered via a period reconstruction pharmacy, showed an interesting film from the period about the spread of Art Nouveau across Europe. However, we came away feeling underwhelmed and that there...More

The house and furniture are well preserved and showcased. The movie on the Art Nouveau movement across Europe is very good in offering an historical and international representation of the movement. The movie is made of footage from the early 20th century which has great...More
