Slavic Bank Building

Marker ikona

The monumental bank palace situated at one of the busiest intersections in the narrow city centre is a representative work by the architect Hugo Ehrlich.

It was presented as part of the national architectural selection at the Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes world exhibition in Paris in 1925. The construction of the commercial-residential Slavic Bank building, later National Mortgage Bank building, lasted from 1921 to 1923. The designer, famous architect Hugo Ehrlich, is also the author of the so-called ‘Little Vatican’, so it can be said that, along with his fellow architects Drago Ibler and Ivan Vitić, Erhlich has left a significant mark on the previous and current look of that part of Zagreb. The building is one of his many valuable accomplishments in bank palace typology, for which he has earned worldwide recognition.



Program bar

The bar Program is located on the site of a former charming Divas bistro. Saša Žerajić, the ever-present and loved face of the bistro, who worked there since the opening, decided to create his own concept in the same place. 


PULS*AR was established in December 2013, as a new initiative by principal architects with a collective wealth of experience built through their individual careers, each stretching back almost twenty years. Together, they encompass a wide range of varied concepts, designs, and built developments, winning them international recognition and a host of prestigious awards.

Kreativni centar Ledana

Unutrašnjost bloka u Bauerovoj 19 jedan je od primjera dugogodišnjeg nastojanja za očuvanjem bivšeg industrijskog kompleksa tvornice leda kao prostora od javnog značaja, a protiv pokušaja njegove privatizacije.
