 Overview
 Description
Now a monument to the dead of WWII, the ruin has been cleaned up. Stone walls and arches remain; there are no roof or windows. At night the city lights are visible thru gaps in the structure.

There is no signage forbidding access; but they haven't made it easy either. There is no marked crossing. Traffic in the roundabout is fast and heavy, but lighter late at night. Foreign visitors who aren't used to left-sided driving need to take extra care.
