Beautiful Kallina House

It's finally restored! One of the most beautiful examples (and one of the most important in this part of Europe) of Secession architecture - Kuća Kallina (Kallina House). It was built between 1903. and 1904. by the famous Zagreb architect Vjekosav Bastl. It is well know for the beautiful decorations and the fact it is all covered up in ceramic tiles painted in lively colours with motifs of flowers and bats. And this photo really doesn't do the justice to it! If you're in Zagreb you'll find it on the corner of Masarykova and Gundulićeva street.
