The house was built for rich merchant, lover of arts John Speiman and his wife Judith in the beginning of 17th century. Maybe this house could be even more beautiful, if not the loss of some house design materials. Golden House' decoration was prepared in Italy and sailed by sea to Gdansk, but ship drowned with all goods inside, so it was decided to construct more modest house.

Legend tells, that house is ghosted by Judith Speiman spirit and it is heard her voice, pronouncing words: "Do everything justly, don't be afraid of anyone".

Directions: It is in main square of city - wide Długi Targ street
