For Russian-speaking tourists, an audio guide in Russian is given on the bus. But the meeting guide does not understand Russian. It was difficult for me to understand where we were meeting and where to go, since I don’t speak other languages. As a result, I bought an audio guide for 8 euros and went to museums with it. And the rest is all good.

A trip to the gardens is worth all the money, I heartily recommend it. One star flew, because after returning from the gardens, no one told us what to do next, and we just had to move around the museums on our own and without the original group.
