About us

Vokiečių Street is one of the oldest streets in Vilnius. If was named after the German merchants and craftsmen who were residing here as far back as the 14th century. Usually, they would come to Vilnius from Riga. Most likely due to the expanding German society the evangelical prayer house was established in this street. Moreover, St. Michael Church and the Franciscan Church, the first gothic churches in Vilnius, were erected nearby. In the 16th century the street was at its best as the richest merchants had their masonry houses built there. Salon “Artist” is in one of those time-tested houses (No. 20). The place for the salon wasn’t picked accidentally – health and beauty is our craft and art, so we knew, that we had to establish “Artist” in the place with rich history and craftsmanship roots.
