Possibly the most important house on Linhartov trg is 16th-century Šivec House, which is an interesting hybrid: Renaissance on the outside and Gothic within. On the ground floor is a vaulted hall, which now serves as a gallery (changing exhibitions). On the 1st floor are three restored rooms, including a 'black kitchen' and a wood-panelled, late-Gothic drawing room with a beamed ceiling used as a wedding hall. Our favourite feature is the 2nd-floor collection of children’s book illustrations by celebrated Slovenian artists.

Curiously, there is only a charge to visit the 1st floor – if you say you're visiting the 2nd floor, it's free to enter, and you will pass the restored rooms on your way up the stairs.
