The City hall is destroyed, the windows are covered by wood. It is sad, because it had to be an impressive building. But still it has a spirit and i am sure it will be repaired soon.
Two architects worked on the project, Alexandar Wittek was sent to Cairo to study islamic architecture and arts. The model is supposed to be Hassan II. mosque. Later he died in Graz and the hall was completed by architect Ciril Ivekovic in 1894. The construction started 1892.
Sadly, the building was burnt down 24th and 25th August 1992.
