The old Jewish houses create fascinating scenery, watched over by the mighty guardian of the town, the nearby ancient Dietrichstein chateau.

The first written record of Mikulov is dated 1173. In 1414 there were already about 2,500 inhabitants. Mikulov was first developed the Liechtenstein family between 1249 and 1560 as the center of their estate. Between 1575 and 1945 the Dietrichstein family took over rule and the town reached its heyday. An exceptional figure in the history of the town was the prince, cardinal and Bishop of Olomouc František of Dietrichstein. He transformed this provincial town into the temporary center of Moravia. His orientation to renaissance Italian culture and the consequent choice of architects and builders gave the town a new appearance.
The earliest surviving records of the house or plot of land on which the house stands dates back to the 24th of July 1847. The first preserved record in the land owner registry is from the year 1873. In that year, the right of ownership according to the purchase agreement was in the favor of Theresie Fehl to the sum of 3,000 gold pieces.
From the above it is clear that the actual construction of the building took place in the period between those dates. This fact is confirmed by the town plans from 1826 and 1847, where instead of the existing building there is undeveloped vacant space. Therefore, construction had to take place after 1847. It is not clear from the persevered records whether truly first owner and therefore the builder of the house was Mrs. Theresie Fehl. The Engelsmann family became the next property owners in 1908.
The Jewish history of the residents of the home ends in 1933 when the Salaška family bought the house. The oldest surviving drawings and focus come from this period. A sad chapter in its history was the year 1945, when the house was confiscated by the Czechoslovak state. According to a decision of the Resettlement Office in 1949, the right of ownership turned in favor of the new settlers of Mikulov. This moment marks the beginning of the modern history of the house.
This two-story house represents an extraordinary example of very late classicism architecture of the second half and third quarter of the 19th century. Inside the interior of the house, the following elements can be considered valuable: natural stone flooring on the landing of the stairs, oak stairs to the first floor including a circular cross-section iron handrail, internal entrances in a classicist style, a glazed veranda made in combination with timbered walls made to the high level of the then joinery craftsmanship. This veranda is enclosed with a safety roller blind made from corrugated iron. During the construction works performed on the property, a 10 m long arched cellar built from Mušlov limestone bricks was discovered. The historically valuable element of the garden is an old Jewish stone fountain.
