Swedish Gate

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.


Swedish Gate are one of the most interesting buildings in Old Town. The gate was built in the city wall in 1698 by the Swedes, who occupied the town at the time, and was named after the Swedish heroic defense of Riga during the Nordic War.

It is the only one city gate in Riga that retained its primordial looks.
