Soft snow, gently falling down outside, gave a nice view out of the window of this historical pub, where I spent the evening with my friend planning our short holiday trip. The pub has been converted from a chemist’s, with the decor and features of the old jugend building left intact.

Since 1993, a unique clientele has loyally gathered inside these historic walls, despite the fact that the interior has stayed exactly the same. It’s quite an achievement in the modern times of hectic change.

    Buildings left to retain their historical character – a heart-warming post, Sinikka. I feel very much at home in these buildings.

      This pub has got a special atmosphere that, I’m convinced, comes from the preserved history. It’s as though you can hear the whispers of the past there.

    A warm feeling. I like both modern and older buildings. So important to preserve some of that historical charm. We need to be able to keep in touch with our past.
