1876 The history of the Benjamins’ House goes back to 1876 and it is related to the wealthy merchant’s family called the Pfabs.
The house was designed in the eclectic style by the architects V. Ende (1829 – 1907) who had been invited from Berlin and had got their inspiration from the Italian Renaissance in Florence.
In 1965 the Writers’ Union established a new tradition - the Poetry Days.

Considerable construction work and renovation has been carried out in order to transform this mansion with its special history and unique layout into a functional, comfortable hotel with 60 bedrooms.
