The Grand Terrace is a part of spa buildings intended for relaxation and enjoyment. The grand opening of the Grand Terrace was in 1912. At that time it was used as a multipurpose facility. The upstairs was renowned for its monumental ball room.
Right in front of the Grand Terrace, from the same period and of the same style, lies the tiniest Art Nouveau special purpose facility - the Music Pavillion. In the spirit of time, it was used and is still being used as a venue for promenade concerts.
The Memorial Well was erected in the honour of the completion of constructions of the ansamble of Palić Art Nouveau spa buildings in 1912. It perfectly fit in the atmosphere on the lake front.
