The Town Hall reminds strongly traditional Polish Town Halls. No wonder, the Bucovina was under the first decades of its Austrian time part of Galicia which was dominated by the Polish - and the architects of the Town Hall were of Polish origin, too.

On Photo 3 you can read "VIRIBUS UNITIS" (with united forces) on the City Hall which was the motto of the Austrian Emperor Franz Joseph I who was ruling 68 years, 1848 - 1916 and this was a geat time in the history of the city.
