At the address Lenin Street, 31, there is a historical building, the so-called "Hunting lodge".
The name "Hunting Lodge" was given to the building due to the fact that there were hunting trophies in its interior.
The hunting lodge is a house built in 1926 in the Art Nouveau style using decorative elements made of wood.
The building has a multi-tiered stone-metal structure, lined with sawn logs to create the effect of wooden architecture.
From 1925 to 1933, the owner of the house was Karl von Streng, the mayor of Rauschen. The house was also used as a boarding house "Sea View", in which, in addition to the living rooms of the burgomaster's family, there were rooms for vacationers for 24 places.
In the post-war years, one of the buildings of the military sanatorium was located in the walls of the building.
After the release in 1997 of the movie "About Little Red Riding Hood. Continuation of the "fairy tale", the building also began to be called the "House of the Stargazer".
Since 2003, the building has been privately owned.
