One of the most enigmatic buildings not only of the neighbourhood, but of the whole city, the so-called ‘House with Gothic Windows’ flares the imagination of passers-by and researchers of built heritage alike.

Set on the shores of Bega, the building’s mysterious silhouette had been often mistaken for that of a synagogue. The house is remarkable though its Neo-gothic decorations, the floral lacing of Gothic inspiration, and the elevation of the central area of the facade. However, the building’s story is still a mystery to be solved.
