What I can see

Nowadays, a bank is housed in this eclectic building. There are neoclassical elements such as pediments. Its decoration is also elaborate, such as the balustrades that refer to Ziller’s motifs and decorative elements influenced by the French Second Empire.

What I can't see

It is an example of an early 20th century building, which shows the gradual transition of architecture from the strict principles of neoclassicism to new architectural trends.
