FORMER SCYTHE FACTORY GETS A SECOND LEASE OF LIFE
The Smoke Factory is a space born out of a naïve dream, established in a late 19th century factory made famous by E. Possehl, a German who put his knowledge, skills and insights into action and started producing scythes, which were then exported around the world.
One of our goals is to help transform the Naujoji Vilnia district, to show its charming side. It is still stigmatised by many, so we will strive to become an attractive, high-level cultural and event destination.
Naujoji Vilnia, known locally as Vileika, has a lot to tell and show. We hope to become a place that will once again make Vileika famous.
