It would be one of many similar buildings, you can find in Ljubljana - however the painting facade makes a difference! Something very original and definitely worth to see.

Normally, viewing a bank building is not on people's list of things to do. But, this building is very distinctive and is well worth the short walk from the Main Square. The colors are very striking and pretty.

Brightly decorated former bank building. Interesting to see, and to understand that it's decoration came at a time soon after independence when Slovenia was trying to develop a sense of it's unique identity. This attempt at that did not catch on.
