The former bishop’s estate at the intersection of Vlaška and Vončinina streets was the seat of Maksimilijan Vrhovac’s earthly treasure. Vrhovac is responsible for the expansion and planning of the city of Zagreb at the end of the 18th century.
The bishop’s estate is another classic Zagreb building whose construction is credited to Maksimilijan Vrhovac, a local bishop at the turn of the 19th century. The building, which is quite large for that time, is the somewhat older counterpart of the bishop’s garden house in the immediate vicinity, and the estate served as the seat of his earthly property. Today the building is home to a kindergarten and private apartments. Like the garden house, the estate is also a single-storey building, but much longer, with a characteristic facade organized into sixteen axes and square unprocessed stones shallowly cut into the plaster on the upper floor. It was only between the two world wars that a corner was formed providing a view of Vončinina street from the loggia and through the wide windows.
