Actor’s house is a cultural and educational institution. At first, there was a Karaites’ temple architected by Horodetskii here. The building stands out with Moorish-Arab luxurious facades. The interiors are almost completely preserved. Now the National Union of Theatre Artists of Ukraine settles here and that is why the building is called so now.
In the original form, the house had a beautiful dome with stucco decorations, but it was destroyed in Soviet times.
The library here includes 22 thousands of books.
Karaites still try to get their temple back, but their minority consists of only 100 people. According to Ukrainian law it is insufficient reason.
