Between Stari trg Nos 11 and 15 – the house that should bear the number 13 but now says 11a – there’s a lovely rococo building with a large Atlas supporting the upper balcony. The figure has his finger raised to his lips, asking passers-by to be quiet (the owner’s name means ‘Silent One’ in German). In this part of the world, bordellos were traditionally located at house No 13 of a street, and he probably got quite a few unsolicited calls.
