Primate's palace is nice classical palace in the town with pink facade and famous mirror hall. The peace treaty between Austria and France was signed here. The treasure inside the palace are the tapestries- there are the only tapestries in the world that stayed together...More

Only a 3 EUR fee and you'll get to see beautiful woven tapestry and a great mirror hall. Very small, perhaps not much but still worth the visit.

The Primates Palace dominates the small Primacialne square. The frontage of the palace is worth a picture, but inside (fee) it becomes much more uninteresting. Discover the Fountain of St George at the courtyard. Today, the Primates Palace is the residence of the town’s Mayor,...More

View six old English tapestries woven in the 1630s by Flemish weavers. The other artifacts inside are uninspiring. Worth a short stop on a self-guided walking tour of the old town.

This was an interesting tour and our tour guide was very interesting. She explained the mirror hall and the stories behind the beautiful tapestries. Unfortunately, taking photos inside is not allowed, so you'll just have to see them for yourself.

This is a lovely building in the heart of the old town, hard to miss when strolling the streets. There are sometimes special events staged outside by the city council.

Primate's palace - everyone will recommend the famous mirror hall (famous because the peace treaty between Austria and France was signed here) For me however, the tapestries were the magnet. These are the only tapestries in the world that stayed together as a complete collection...More
