Out of league compared to the townhalls shown thus far, but still not bad looking - Sliven, Thrace, Bulgaria. Each day, at exactly 12:00, the clocktower trumps the melody of an old revolutionary song, calling the Bulgarians to rise against the Turk. Note the coat of arms.

In Madrid, this is the actual town hall since 2007 (it was the central post office since 1917 that was finished).







And this was the old town hall, a 17th century building.

Very impressive with all these beautiful town halls. What is more impressive is that you seem to live in basicly every town in Belgium since the topic here is "Town hall of YOUR city"

Eindhoven

architect: Dom Hans van der Laan, refurbished by Architecten En-En.

Not really classic, is it?

Talking about modern townhalls, I'd like to show Dudok's Raadhuis Hilversum, just because it's one of the absolute classics
