This grand building with its unusual octagonal spire was built following a project by the renowned Czech architect Jan Vejrych in 1911. Its ground floor houses the town’s Information Centre and Ceska sporitelna (Savings Bank) whose main entrance is from Kavanova St. The bank foyer offers showcases for occasional exhibitions of photographs or creative art works. On the 1st floor, visitors can see ceiling and mural frescos by the noted painter Mikolas Ales. The famed singer at Prague’s National Theatre, Marie Lausmanova, was born in the bank building on 7 February 1855. Her birth and the construction of the building are commemorated by a tablet placed on one of the walls.
