Ferbers family was very important in Gdansk history. A few of them were city majors, some had other important roles in the history...
They had their house on Long street 28. I was one of the most beautiful buildings up to the moment, when it was said to be haunted. That was becouse of the history of one man from this family.
He was despairing after his wifes' death. He wanted to see her once more. That's why he hired some man, who was said to be able to show the spirits of dead people. He said, that during this procces, there can't be any alive creature in this house...
Ferber agreed, but he didn't know, that his loyal servant hid himself in one room, waiting (just if any problems occured).
The session was succesful. Ferber could see many spirits from the past - they made a line. The first pair were Adam and Eva - first people on the Earth....
...his wife was on the end.
Next day, when woke up, he saw, that the man has dissapeard and his loyal servant was dead...
Ferber gone mad, and died not long time later.
After that noone wanted to live in haunted house - it was staing alone.
Judged criminals could go there and if he was able to go to some higher floor, it was nearly sure, his sentencee will be shorted :)

That's why this house is called also Adam and Eva tenement :)
