New Town Square
New Town Square lies in the heart of New Town. At the turn of 14th and 15th century it was laid out as a spacious rectangular square. Until 1818 it had its town hall standing in the middle of the square. Today it is a triangular-shaped square.


The facades of many buildings around the square are covered with Socialist Realist murals. The market square possesses 19th century iron well on the Freta Street side bearing the New Town coat of arms of the unicorn and virgin. On the eastern side of the square, there is a convent of the Benedictines of the Perpetual Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
