Swedish Gate, Riga: 20 reviews and 51 photos


This building looks very medieval and romantic, but, for real, it was built not for defense, but to celebrate the Scandinavian occupation of Riga (1698). So, in my opinion, it was good gift for people living and visiting Riga, as this one object now is the famous must see place when coming to Riga.

Address: 11 Tornu street
Directions: Near Jacob's baracks.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
