In the year 1515 the late Gothic town hall was built in today's square Glavni trg, which between the year 1563 and 1565 Italian masters reconstructed in the Renaissance style. Dating also from that time is the balcony (loggia), decorated with relief, on which there is an image of the town’s coat-of-arms, surrounded by two lions and the year 1565 inscribed on it. The façade is enriched with pilasters.

Entanglements with the tower

Above the eastern part stands a Baroque small tower with a bulbous roof, about the construction of which a story says: "The job of building the tower was given to a master builder but he was paid too few gold coins; filled with wrath the builder did not construct the middle of the tower! Can you see the difference?

In the middle of the 19th century the building was given a late classicist look, in the years from 1952 to 1954 it was renovated and given its original image. Of particular interest is the Baroque hall, which was fitted by A. Quadrio. Today it serves for weddings and for the Mayor's receptions.
