A three-stored brick building of the 19thcentury: in that time - a dwelling house with shops. The interior was modifiedwhen restored. The abundant adornment in the spirit of classicism adds solemn and monumental features to this building of eclecticism. One side of it is cut through with a passage to the yard. Itsd?cor is composed along the street fa?ade, where three corners, or rizalits (Italian. risalita "projection") slightly moved forward, are crowned with pediments adjoining to the attics with vases. The ground floor is rusted. Four balconies in tworizalits (two on the left from the entrance and two on the right) have kept metallic grills of a composed ornament. Like in the passage's grill spirals are predominated
