While you move from the old town towards the commercial center of the city you will come across a famous landmark in the city. It is nothing but a unique clock present in a corner of the road.

Although being a simple clock it has historical importance as it was made in 2924 and at that time it was used as the political informational stand. This famous landmark in Riga has been under restoration and reconstruction several times till now.

4.      Powder Tower

Powder Tower

What is now known as the powder tower was once a functional defensive hub for the city of Riga. The construction of this tower was completed in 1650 and at that time this 25.6 meters high tower was used as a part of the defensive system of the city. However, the tower was renovated in 1940 which took more than 3 years to complete, and then it was made a part of the Latvian War Museum.

5.      The Swedish Gate

The Swedish Gate

You might have guessed that this gate was used as a part of the defensive system of Riga. Well, yes, it was made in 1698 as part of the Riga Wall that protected the city from the outside world. Now it is not functional that way however it is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the place with the historical architecture displayed like no other place.

6.      Three Brothers

Apart from how its name makes you think of the place, it is a location where there are 3 houses in Riga. The special thing about these houses is that they are the oldest buildings in Riga so watching them will be an experience like no other.

The interesting fact about these houses is that each of these three comes from an architectural style of a different era making things pretty interesting. While you visit this place you can experience some other old buildings present on the same street as well.

Riga Cathedral

Riga cathedral holds high importance for the people of Riga as well as for the tourists. The reason is its religious importance, architectural beauty, and historical existence. It was built in the early 13th century and in all of the Baltic states, it is known as the largest medieval church.

9.      House of the Black Heads

This is a historical building dating back to the early third of the 14th century. If you are walking in the city in the evening time, then it is the best time to visit the old town to see this building as the lights make it look even more attractive. This building was made as a guild for unmarried merchants, foreigners as well as shipowners.
