Raichle Mansion at present a modern art gallery building, one of the most splendid art nouveau style buildings in Subotica. It was named after Ferenc Raichle, the owner and designer of the building. This architect from Subotica, educated in Budapest, built the house as his family home in 1904, although both he and his family lived there only for a short time. Namely, he went bankrupt and had to leave the house in 1908, so his house with all the furniture and artifacts was sold. Raichle Mansion is considered a master piece from the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century, on which Ferenc Raichle demonstrated his craft and talent as a leading architect. The most lavish decorative ornaments on the facade were made of the famous Zsolnay tiles, while the base was built of pink marble. Venetian glass was used for the stained glass windows.

Rogina bara is an ancient swamp on the east side of medieval Subotica, later a military fosse. After some time, though, it started to hamper the development of the city, thus the Royal Chamber made a decision to plant willows there. Later, in 1794, an order was passed to drain the swamp and sell the land for plots. In spite of all efforts in drainage, some water remained there. During the 40’s of the 20th century, kids used to swim in it and boats sailed on it. In 1888, the City Council passed a decision to cover the remaining of the swamp with sand, to build a park and a judiciary building there. For a year and a half, sand was brought and plots were sold at a location where present day’s most beautiful buildings built – today’s Korzo.
