Why locals love it

Strange example of late Art Nouveau housing at the star to of the Street of Peace.

Why you should visit it

This house, one of the last of the Art Nouveau period, was erected in 1912. At the time it was widely panned by critics as being plain and ugly. Turns out it was just ahead of its time, as 20 years later it was seen as an example of early functionalism.

Special tip

Look for the bearded men!
