Cats’ House

Not all of the buildings in Old City can be described with one or other architectural style. There is a building in Old City, decorated with two black cats on the top. The building was made by F.Shefel in 1909, using Jugendstyle elements.

A story tells that the owner of the building was in anger with City Council and therefore he decided to show his attitude, putting the cats on top of the roof with their backs to City Council, but as it was late evening and the work was done very fast, cats are looking to both sides and not both with their backs to City Council.
