Livu (Livs’) Square is comparatively “young”, it was formed in the middle of the 20th century. On the Square there is located one of the most interesting complexes of residential buildings of 18th century in Riga. In summer time there are a lot of street cafes and life here is never quiet. Live Square was formed in the middle of the 20th century in an area previously occupied by buildings destroyed during World War II. The most remarkable elements of this Square are residential buildings of the 18th century on Meistaru Street. This is one of the most recognisable “postcard” views of Old Riga. The houses here were attached to the former fortification wall which served as a rear wall of the houses and the houses also shared the lateral walls between them, which allowed considerable savings on materials.

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.
