Wall Street in Riga

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.

"Three Wall Street" is written on the wall.

From Latvian the name of the place , Valnu street 3,  really means Wall street nr.3!   :) The "Wall" street was named after the fortification walls that used to surround all Riga till th middle of 19th cent..  The Powder Tower - the most famous from the few fortification towers wich has remained till nowadays, also is near that place.
