  • It was closed, so i went to see it only for the appearance. The roof and the decoration of the wall are all blue Jornai tiles, the door and the window frame are blue, too and it is a very impressive building. It was interesting to see the image of fossils such as ammonites, because it was the Institute of Geology.
