Old Town, Riga: 53 reviews and 134 photos
In Riga still some fragments of old defensive wall left and it proves Riga was once medieval and well equipped defensively city. Some fragments of red wall you can see near Jacob's barracks - in one side of street barracks are, and in another - the wall with Swedish gates.
It seems, Riga once had the wall, naturally, around old town, but later, in wartime, it was destroyed and now around old town we see only some fragments of it and nice gardens.
Address: Tornu street
Directions: Near Jacob's barracks.
