Blackheads House Apr 28, 2013
Blackheads House history goes quite far away.First it was built in year 1334.It has been reconstructed on numerous occasions.It was completely ruined in Second World War.

Rebuilt in only year 1999.Blackheads house location is near Occupation museum black building.In front of Blackheads building there as statute of Roland.Rebuilt at year 2000!Statute of Roland represents the symbol of free medieval towns.Now it's main attraction for tourists and even locals.Because inside of building there interesting things to see.Such as huge pictures in big golden frames,sculptures etc...!

Entrance fee is 2ls,it's worth to visit,if you like museums.

P.S.Photos of underground floor,next time i visit will put photos of 1st floor :)

Stunning!!! Jun 02, 2010
Absolutely stunning both inside and out. It's a 14th Century building which was destroyed during the war and then rebuilt in the early 2000's. It's a museum which is in the square - and is close to everything :)
