A very ornate building. The clock tower is impressive, but make sure you view from the side or you may miss it. You can take a tour inside too if you wish.

The main building of the old town square, the town hall looks the part and also has small but meaningful exhibits inside that are worth a look.

Upon entering there are paintings on the walls. The one that impressed me is am impressionistic painting of a symphony orchestra. Gustave Mahler led the orchestra here when he was young.

Step inside the town hall for a few minutes to appreciate the history, structure, glass covered atria and bite-sized exhibitions (at least three were ongoing when we visited). Then pop next door to Vinoteka Movia to chew it over and quaff a few wines.

This regal looking place is in the important square up the top on the hill where it never floods. Its of classic architecture from a time when important buildings were made to last.

Stop if you pass by, but don't expect anything that will make you feel like "wow!". They had a temporary exhibition that was OK and the building has and internal patio with some interesting Roman style paintings.

Was tempted to walk straight past after viewing from outside but decided to go in and it was definitely worth the visit! A lot of interesting pieces to see, though most of the explanations are in Slovene.
