    • Thank you, Carlos. It is in fact a very interesting building. It doesn’t show in the frame, but both sidewings of the building are very modern glass and steel constructions, creating quite a contrast to the classical midsection.

  1. I wonder who is the “they” that will revive. Is the building limestone? In color that green ivy would be a nice contrast to the structure.

    • I was wondering too and did some research. As far as I know the building itself is made of sandstone, like so many other classical and official buildings of that era.
      What appears like a wall in the picture is a monument made of a number of stacked blocks. The whole monument looks quite like an early history crypt. Inside is a sculpture of a dead soldier. The monument was created in 1924 in memory of all the dead soldiers of World War I.

  2. All the photos are great, so even cannot choose any photos to leave comments. Just awesome. :)
