Mierové námestie 4, Trenčín
Ferdinand Silberstein
1934 – 1937

The building of the Municipal Savings Bank (Slovenska sporitelna today) is located close to the town hall. It shows how far the architecture has gone within a short period of time – these buildings were completed maybe only a year apart. Savings Bank has a characteristic lightness of Silberstein's architecture. Four-section windows are framed with a thin travertine lining. The street level is also clad in travertine. The building slightly bends into the side street Farska. Originally, there was a movie theatre in the basement of the building. The main hall is relatively small, with an interesting travertine railing in the backdrop. Facades were renovated in 1998.
