Summary / Abstract:

ENThe article is focused on a historical house, located on Pilies Street in Vilnius, Lithuania. The house which belonged to a merchant Karol Kazimierz Sztrall coincidentally became an important symbol of the independence of modern Lithuania. It was the venue where The Council of Lithuania met and finally declared Lithuania's independence on February 16, 1918. The author discusses the history of the building and activities associated with Lithuanian organisations that operated in Vilnius in the first half of the last century. [From the publication]
