The town square still retains the same traits. Public properties built in the 19th century are still present today: Serbian Orthodox Church, Catholic Church, town hall, schools (a secondary school, and Feješ Klara Elementary School next to it), a pub (there was one in the Theater building; now there are many in the center), and the rectory at Generala Drapšina Street.

Kikinda now has one of the most beautiful squares in Serbia. The former square was reconstructed according to the plan made by the architects Predrag Cagić and Borivoje Jovanović in 1983.

Special attention was paid to the objects of architectural value, which were emphasiyed as the architectural frame of the pedestrian area.
