The building of the Municipial Council of Zilina is an excellent example of the Slovak modernistic architecture. It was built in 1988 according to a design of Viera Mecková, a famous Slovak woman architect. She received a prize of the Slovak Architects' Association for this design.
The building is said to be interesting thanks to original form of its elevation - it is made of ceramic tiles, which sometimes form interesting compositions. Its expressive look is also a consequence of large glazings and windows. In 2017 the building was renovated, but of course with a great concern for saving its unique expression. In front of the building there is also the monument to the victims of the communist regime by Slovak academic sculptor Milan Lukáč.
