The building was half built by a Belgian who left in the middle of the project. Apparently they never finished it, built a wall, and called it a day. It’s a beautiful building and has all the statues surrounding it.

We toured through this architecturally unique building which was once a "City Hall" and is now used as a Palace of Culture. Only problem was the amount of staircases, which made it physically difficult for some of us older members of the group.
