It has a train stop just steps from the famous hippodrome. It is a residential district, as most of the buildings are one story family houses and only some condominiums are not higher than three stories. This is a place where the hippodrome is located. In an area which covers 40 hectares, many events take place every year, including not only horse races but many exhibitions, concerts, and occasional parties. In 1999, a holy mass was celebrated by Pope John Paul II for over 700 thousands people. On the hippodrome premises, disabled people can participate in various exercises with horses as a part their treatment. It is a rather attractive district for people looking to invest in real estate with prices similar to those in other parts of the town. This is one of the districts that still has land available for construction. There are only a few restaurants to stop for beer or for dinner. One of the rare places is Derby Restaurant which has a discotheque and bar open in the evening.
