Rīgas „Brēmenes muzikanti” ir Brēmenes mākslinieces Kristas Baumgarteles autordarbs (1990), kas radies pēc brāļu Grimmu "Brēmenes muzikantu" motīviem.
Skārņu iela, Pēterbaznīca, Rīga, Latvija.

One of the landmarks in Riga is sculpture of four animals, a donkey, a dog, a cat and a rooster standing on each other, although the dog looks more like a pig to me. It is based on a fairy tail by the brothers Grimm and represents the Town Musicians of Bremen. Riga, Latvia.

This is an overview of Riga

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.
