I wouldn't consider that an example of art-deco. It's more classical.

This example of your city is more art-deco:

You got to be joking,this is cinema Urania,one of the best examples of art noveau buildings in Osijek,and one of the best examples in Croatia!Built in 1912 by Viktor Axmann,I know the whole history of this building and its not art deco!

This building that i posted was mentioned as a art deco building in few book that people from museum of Slavonia and Baranja wrote.

Your right about cinema Urania (although it bears some similarities of Art Deco, at this site eg it is coined as an 'Art deco style buliding') but the example you gave is definitely not art deco. Look at the buildings given in this threat. They are completely different.

Those are very obviously not art deco. Maybe Baroque or neo-classical.

wow... that is a handful of art deco... and beautiful as well... I especially like the Manchester Unity Building... I feel lie Art Deco is one of those architectural styles that build upon earlier historical architecture! Very impressive
