Goldsmiths’ Guild

First guilds, which were legally regulated associations of craftsmen, began to establish in Vilnius at the end of the 15th century. In 1495, the goldsmiths’ guild was established. The rest of the craftsmen, who did not belong to the guild, could not continue their craft. Each guild had their chappel, members had to celebrate the holidays, and in case if a member gets sick, others had to look after his family. 

The house of goldsmiths’ guild survived to our days (Gaono St. 6). However, the goldsmiths not only had produced golden jewels for the rich, but they also solved various mysterious cases. One of them was related to the golden boy named Paul. Learn more about this story by clicking on this link.
