The Ceremonial Hall of the City Hall , after a thorough reconstruction implemented on the occasion of the sixth century since the city’s first mentioning in 1991, had shown again its original art nouveau glamour as designed by Dezső Jakab and Komor Marcell. Due to additional technical equipments, the hall may be used for concerts, weddings and important gatherings, and it is probably one of the most beautiful ceremonial halls in this part of the world. The coat-of-arms on the ceiling of the Hall – which had once been changed by change of powers in the city - catch the eye among the lavish decorative details. During the regeneration works, the original symbols were returned and they include the crest of Subotica with Virgin Mary with Jesus, Saint Theresa of Avila and a lion with a sword. The Ceremonial Hall is also decorated by impressive stained glass: Emperor Franz Josepg and Maria Theresia, the Empress and their two pages. The lateral windows depict Hungarian kings and six renowned persons of the Hungarian history. These stained glass windows were made by Miksa Roth i Sándor Nagy in their workshop.
The Grand Terrace The construction of art nouveau style building in Palić ended in 1911, and was built to serve different purposes ( a confectionery, restaurant, a hall for parties and balls). The front of the building is dominated by two massive, open terraces decorated by impressive fences. In front of the Grand Terrace, there is the smallest art nouveau style facility, the Music Pavilion.
The Grand Terrace, stretching on about 3300 m² together with some other buildings in the Palic Grand Park is part of the touristical and cultural heritage of the settlement. Its reconstruction is underway.
The Green Council Hall of the City Hall has also been decorated in art nouveau style. Presently, it is the Mayor’s formal salon, where he receives visits from official delegations.
