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.

This place lays in the old center just about under the castle. Nice small shops. At new year eve is this the place to be, Outside music performance and you can drink a gluehwine (guhano vino) and at midnight you can go slowly to the river bank to see firework.

What more can you say? A pivotal point for towns people. Plenty of activities in front and around and just people doing the people watching thing.

Very interesting to see this old building. I couldn't find out exactly how old it is but it is a photographers dream. It looked really interesting as we viewed it during a serious thunderstorm ..

This Old Town Hall is small, with its steps up to a building not much bigger than a large house, but it goes back some way, and there is a small inner courtyard. As well as official duties going on here, it is used for exhibtions, festivals, receptions etc. Worth a quick look - it is free on the ground... More

This Town Hall is located in the middle of the Old Town , close to the Fountain and open to visitors . There are art exhibitions going on most of the times and an interesting one hour tour on Saturday afternoon around one o'clock . The guide wears a traditionnal Slovenian costume which adds to the interest .

You can visit the Town Hall and experience the beauty of the building while you see the current exhibition housed on the ground floor of the building. Well worth a visit and there is no charge.
