Before us the area of Gerdera. On a shot we see Holmes with Watson and the police inspectors who are coming nearer to us. Extreme on the right a building – the Museum of history of Riga. And at the left the tiny public garden in which the monument to is established what name carries the area: to Johann Gottfried Gerderu.
Originated from a small fishermen village, for centuries Riga has been an important part of the trade chain between Russia and Western Europe. A lively crossroad of cultures and backgrounds for over 800 years, the historical centre of Riga has accumulated an impressive cultural baggage and today is justly included in the UNESCO’s World Heritage list.
