The house fascinates with its architecture, the magnificent wood carvings and drawn ornaments on cupboards and ceilings. The twenty four windows with Venetian stained glass in the reception room as if throw their glance at the whole town in a full circle. It possesses an enormous wine – cellar. This house will meet you with the culture and the history of the 19 th century. Now the house is a private museum.
