The most beautiful architectural monument is an old villa with an unusual name of Měšťanská beseda (Eng. - City Talk). The villa built at the beginning of the 20th century is executed in the rare architectural style of Secession. According to the idea of the city authorities, this luxurious villa should have housed a cultural center, accessible to all citizens. Today, the sumptuous building is a popular venue for various cultural events, it often hosts art exhibitions, ceremonies, and symphony orchestra performances. Over the years, the villa has managed to retain some of its rich interior decoration. A few years ago a small cinema, as well as a cozy cafe, were opened in the historic building.
