Powder Tower

Playriga.com the site that started as a web site for tourists, evolved to be against tourists (especially sex tourists), afterwards changed again to focus on art and culture and eventually crashed and was restored from old backup!
The site has still has prices in Lats (LVL), pages are not updated since long long time ago, but in any case it stays as it is as a nice souvenir to old times.


The old Powder Tower was used in the past to store gunpowder (and therefore it's name).

Today this is the only tower that is left from the towers that surrounded the Old Town (all the other towers were destroyed).

The Powder Tower is located near the Latvian Parliament.
