The City Hall

The City Hall, the centre and symbol of Subotica, was built in 1912 and was designed by Komor and Jakab, the renowned architects. The decorative features of art nouveau, the style of the turn of centuries, are enriched on this building with a romantic nuance of the Hungarian folklore, by floral elements made of ceramics and wrought iron. The Ceremonial Council Hall and its splendid stained windows are the heart of the building. Likewise in the past, the City Hall is an administrative building, but there are also cultural institutions, shops and banks.

The Raichle Palace - Modern Art Gallery

It was built in 1904 by the architect Ferenc Raichle to be his home and design studio. The unusual combination of colours, the vibrancy of forms, the interior and the backyard make this sumptuous mansion an exceptional example of the art nouveau architecture. At present, it hosts the Modern Art Gallery.

The Synagogue

It was built in 1902 in Hungarian art nouveau style. It is decorated by stylized tulips, carnations and peacock feathers. With daring and modern architectural solutions, it perfectly harmonizes structure and decoration. The Synagogue is the first design by Komor and Jakab in Subotica and is considered one of the most beautiful synagogues in this part of Europe.
