Architecture
 

At the corner of Smičiklasova street, Martićeva street and the tiny Patačićkina street stands an impressive building that encloses the internal residential block. It was built in 1926/27 according to the architect Dionis Sunk’s design. The building, which is currently under reconstruction, used to be the seat of the Croatian Agricultural Bank.

On the four-storey commercial-residential palace facade, two allegorical sculptures at the end points are worth noting: The Peasant Woman with a Horn of Plenty and Peasant with a Shovel by the famous sculptor Robert Frangeš Mihanović. The richly equipped treasury hall on the ground floor is centrally covered with a stained glass dome, while the wall above the side barrel niches is decorated with built-in wall pictures by the famous artist Vladimir Becić, member of the so-called ‘Munich Circle’ and founder of Croatian art modernism.
