You’ll find rooms dedicated to life during the time period of the city’s founding centuries ago, with a stunning armory contained on the first floor. You’ll find 300 years of art from the 15th century on as part of the permanent exhibition as well.

St. Nicholas’ Cathedral is stunning in its own right as well. It was originally built around 1443, though it was completely updated in the early 1900s. Architects and artists from Vienna were brought in for the project and the stained-glass windows are simply incredible.
