History:

The building was built at the end of the 18th century on the place of an older building. It was designed as an inn and the back wing was used for stalls.
The inn and the restaurant Zum Weissen Rössel (At the White Stallion’s), the diligence station, had also a transportation house. In December  1840, after two years of construction, “Coroana Ungariei” (Zur Ungarische Krone) in was opened. It had a coffee house and a casino on the last floor.
Jikeli’s pharmacy during 1848-1882 came from Piata Mica after the demolition of the houses from  Ocnei street. In 1882 it moved in Burggerg 2;
In the first decade of the 20th century, the building was used by the army  (12 Artillery Brigade) until the completion of the construction from  C Dumbravii.
