The Post Office, certainly one of the most beautiful I've seen, based on the Viennese Post office and it was from this office that the telegram was sent that informed the world Franz Ferdinand has just been assassinated.

Free to go in and look around. Interesting.

this building was completely destroyed during the bosnian war with craots, with the precision of Croatian architect Josip Vancaš the building was rebuilt exactly as it was before the destruction. Amazing art work showing the precision and minute work of the architect !!!!
one of the nicest austro-hungarian buildings in town and you can visit for free (different from the rebuilt town hall). Look at the ceiling and at the still conserved wooden barriers dividing the different sections from the public.
