Flashback

The house was constructed in 1913 by the Public Assembly of Commerce and Industry, or the so-called Merchants’ Club, then a public organization with the richest and most prominent residents of Vilnius as members. Back then it was a very original and luxurious building, one that represented the latest technologies. The Merchants’ Club building housed shops, accommodated offices, a library, a bar and a canteen, meeting, concert, cinema halls and ballrooms.
In 1933 the building of the Merchants’ Club has been reorganized into modern hospital.
In 1947 Soviet Government has nationalized the building and has settled the Executive Committee of Vilnius.
