Not nice and almost able to ruin this amazing city. So sad they had the wrong idea to build it. Just out of the style of the city and absolutely brutal. I did not like it at all.

This building is at one end of the main shopping street (the Meir). I found it to be really impressive. The colour and the style, together with the iconic statues above the entrance. Sadly, it's difficult to find a decent place to take a good...More
