Description Change this

Although the internal structure of the Mostorg department store has been lost almost completely, the exterior is still in good condition and marked an important point in the architectural urban fabric. A glass facade spanning three floors, which used to allow an unobstructed view into the interior of the store. The canopy at the entrance and some details on the ground floor are later additions. Today the building houses a United Colors of Benetton store, advertising posters cover the glass facade.
