Glanvi Trg (Central Square) was first mentioned in 1315 as a market. With the growth of the town, the square was given the name (Glavni trg) in the 19th century. For around 100 years right up to the 2nd World War, this square was the location of the main market where farmers and tradesmen sold their produce and products. Today surrounding Glavni trg are some important, historical buildings and the most important is certainly the town hall or Rotov?. Nearby is the Casino, Aloysius church and provincial archives. In the centre of the square stands the Plague monument, which was erected in memory of the town's victory over the bubonic plague.
