Place name: Spice Souk

It is a place where the atmosphere of the old Middle East literally fills the air – at Spice Souk the smells of all kinds of spices and herbs can make you light-headed. You can come here just for an excursion, but walking along the narrow streets of the market, it is simply impossible to resist a purchase.
