  • Town Hall complex consists of three buildings. The oldest part was built at the end of the sixteenth century. And added the rest in the middle of the eighteenth century. As a result of extensive construction, the city received a harmonious group, amazingly, one of the most beautiful in the whole region.

  • The old town hall is nice to look at, but not exactly a great tourist attraction. It is worth to go in the entrance area. Beautifully designed Hall with cast iron arms and comfortable armchairs.
