This building stands out in the most central part of the city and the exterior of the building is carved from ashlar stone, which corresponds to the example of German buildings before World War II.
Since the architects of this building were Germans, it is not surprising that this building is shaped like an eagle with open wings. A model that was popular in Germany in those years.
