House of Scottish Merchants in Kėdainiai

The most authentic building of Kėdainiai Old Town got its name back in the 17th–18th centuries when the Scottish community established in the town. They had been allured to Lithuania by nobleman Kristupas Radvila who had issued a charter and invited everybody to come to the town. Thus Scots came, built houses and opened shops. Today the House of Scottish Merchants adorns the Old Town of Kėdainiai.
