Mansion-like nature and green surroundings

Sarego Street is a magical place in the Old Town of Kraków, separated from the former meadow of St. Sebastian. It was laid out in 1827 and known as Zielona Street. It was given its current name at the end of the 20s of the 20th century. Initially it was supposed to be strictly mansion-like, however with time urban tenement houses were also built, the typical feature of which were green façades associated with the street name.

At 16 Sarego Street

The first buildings at Sarego Street were built in the 19th century, tenement house number 16 was also built at that time. It was designed by an unknown author and maintained in an eclectic style. At the beginning the property was a two-level building with a side outhouse which closed a spacious yard. With time, the tenement house was extended and renovated. Initial works on the property reach back to 1911. They were contracted by the contemporary owner Bertold Frankel. Further modernization works took place in the 50s of the 20th century.
