Best time to visit

March - May (spring) is speculated to be the prime time for visitors as it’s the season with the lowest rain rate and flowers are in bloom. The city is warming up and it's a pleasurable time to tick off tourist landmarks during the day. September - October (early autumn) is the sweet spot for photogenic nature and handfuls of cultural activities and festivals. December - February (winter) sees the temperatures drop, but that doesn’t stop the nation coming to life with twinkling lights, festivities, markets and Christmas joy.
