Maternity hospital


From the main street, one of Red Village’s most
spectacular and unique structures may be spotted. Despite its remarkable
coloring, the building organically blends into the architectural and historical
character of the settlement. The structure was built in the second half of the
nineteenth century and was designated as a historical monument of local
significance.  The murals on the front portraying children, as well as the
simple plaque over the door, reveal that this historical building was formerly
a maternity hospital. According to stories of locals, the building formerly
belonged to a wealthy Jewish businessman who, despite never having children of
his own, covered it with murals of happy children’s faces.
