13. Druskininkai City Museum / fmr. Villa “Linksma”



Architect: unknown, circa 1908.


Nestled in the picturesque landscape of Druskininkai, on the north-eastern shore of Lake Druskonis, is the romantic villa of banker Adolfas Kiersnovskis. Unlike other villas built in the resort at the time, Liñksma, with its modern features and neoclassical details, was built of brick. The name of this family summer house (Fun) betrays that it was intended for a luxurious holiday; it was a regular venue for banquets featuring French cuisine. After the Kiersnowski family left for the West in 1917, the building passed from one hand to another; it housed the Polish Land Bank, a Court House, the German Civil Commandant’s Office, and a Pioneers’ Palace. Currently, the building houses the Druskininkai City Museum, which is the only one in the city with a coherent exposition of the resort’s history, valuable iconographic and archival material of Druskininkai, and is the venue for many events, concerts, meetings, and conferences.
