It is a profitable building that adorns the intersection of Str. Barikadnaya and D. Yavornytskyi ave. It was designed by local architect Dmytro Skorobogatov on the order of construction contractor Haim Rosenberg. It consisted of several buildings, two of which have survived to our time.
The Choral Synagogue (now "Golden Rose") was opened in the middle of the 19th century. It got its name because of the presence of a choir there. In Soviet times, the House of Culture of the Sewing Factory was located here. Since 2000, after reconstruction, it once again functions as a religious building. The name "Golden Rose" appeared in the 1980s and refers to the Lviv synagogue of the same name, which was destroyed by the Nazis in 1942.
Monument to jeweller Granovsky
It was installed on D. Yavornytskyi Avenue in 2019, not far from the house (not preserved), which belonged to the jeweller Borys Granovsky. The image is imaginary, in reality, it is not known what exactly this jeweller looked like. Now it is a popular place for taking pictures.
National Bank building
It was built in 1912 according to the project of Viktor Estrovich on the order of the St. Petersburg Commercial Bank. For Estrovich, this order became very important, because after it he was invited to Kharkiv, where he worked fruitfully throughout his later life. The building still works as a bank.
