You will definitely be impressed by “Sayilgoh” Street which is lovingly called “the Broadway of the capital” by the local citizens. Here one of the squares has turned into a real French Montmartre, where you can order a portrait for a nominal fee, a friendly cartoon for a friend, a picturesque still-life from a professional or amateur brush / pencil. If you don’t want to wait while the painting is being created, you can simply purchase a ready-made landscape or a view of the city sights.
