Vetrinje Mansion

Architects and restorers discovered various historical layers during the restoration of this Baroque mansion and tried to accentuate and expose them in an attractive manner. The building was stripped of all excess, accentuating the mansion’s best features that were additionally enhanced with modern architectural interventions. The building is fascinating both in terms of space and experience. The mansion will play host to the headquarters of the European Capital of Culture 2012.
