Frenkel's Villa

  Vilniaus 74      (+370) 41 52 43 89     more than a year ago
Built in 1908, the former residence of the Jewish industrialist Chaim Frenkel spent time as a Jewish grammar school from 1920 until 1940 before being commandeered by the Nazis as officers’ quarters and finally falling into the hands of the Soviets who used it as a military hospital. Now run by the city’s Aušros Museum, find two sumptuous floors of beautiful rooms featuring a section commemorating the family of the building’s original owner and many more including rooms celebrating everything from Oriental art to life in Šiauliai during the interwar period. Round the back is a large garden and fountain where concerts are sometimes held during the summer.
