Weiszmayer, Sorger & Comp. Bank / Croatian Financial Agency


The house was designed by the Viennese architect Heinrich Adam in 1896. This, once representative, Neo-Baroque and Historicist building consisted of Winter’s law office and 2 flats. From the then archival cadastral documents it is evident that the house was equally owned by Wilim and his wifw, Julija, born Ungar, who intensly engaged in humanitarian work.

In 1921, architect Hugo Ehrlich adapted and annexed the Weiszmayer and Sorger corner building, the seat of Weiszmayer, Sorger & comp. Bank in the late 19th century, the Croatian Land Bank from 1909. The building was adapted for the needs of the Yugoslav Bank, and today it is the seat of the East-Croatian branch of Croatian Financial Agency (FINA). The bank building has a street corner L-shaped floor plan. The building with its design concept makes the transition to the architecture of modern expression with an emphasised sensitivity for contemporary design of the ground floor and some interior constructive elements. The Ehrlich building of the Yugoslav Bank in Osijek is classified as an exceptional example of construction that marks the national heritage of the transition period from historicism to modernism. It is an individually protected cultural heritage site.
