We did not have precise plans for the morning - we just wanted to see some buildings and areas that we knew from city maps.
We walked the city streets and suddenly we encountered crowd near a small park. People were let in there by invitation only, at least that was what we thought. Many of them were dressed up. We stopped for a moment since we were curious what was going on. It appeared we witnessed a mass wedding ceremony. We were approached by a uniformed man who invited us inside the park and showed us side entrance. There were fifty, maybe hundred couples to be wed. Two couples celebrated fiftieth wedding anniversary.
