You can get an eyeful of the mountains moving up on a rope-way in air bus. The top commanded an amazing view for the mountains and the city. Here is especially beautiful in the night when the city is lighted by multicolored lights. The rope-way rises above the oldest part of a city full of gardens which local people call “Compote”. The reason is the streets’ names in this district: Cherry, Pear, Grape, etc.
