Photo and description
Right next to the main square of the city, on one of the northern side streets, there is the Baroque Pashinski Sermage palace, which attracts attention with its bright orange facades decorated with images of geometric figures. It was built in the 17th century by Baron Franjo Pashinski, a high-ranking Croatian nobleman. In the middle of the 18th century, the palace became the property of the Sermage family. Since then, the second part has appeared in its name - the Pashinski-Sermage Palace. Currently, the palace houses a branch of the Varazdin City Museum - the Art Gallery of Old and New Masters and the archaeological department. The Pashinski-Sermage Palace has several times acted as a film set for Croatian films.
The Sermage Palace is considered one of the oldest houses in Varazdin. It is built in the shape of the Latin letter "L" and is located at the intersection of two streets. The main facade is decorated with a representative portal and a stone balcony. It is interesting that this palace is one of the first buildings in Croatia, built in the Baroque style, where there was a balcony above the portal. The first floor of the palace, which houses the art gallery and the offices of the museum staff, is the best preserved. During the 1947 reconstruction, the stucco ceilings, parquet floors, windows and doors were restored here. The staircase in the building dates back to the 18th century.
The Art Museum often hosts temporary exhibitions covering a variety of topics. Each such exhibition is an important event in the cultural life of the city.
