Klostera Street
Klostera (Cloistral) Street was constructed in the 16th century when the Cloister of Maria Magdalena, after which the street was named, had been transferred into the city’s tenure. The street was built in the second half of the 16th century, when the tenancy of Catholic Church on the territory of the Convent of Maria Magdalene and Jacob’s Church had fallen to the city. In 1925 a part of Klostera Street was named Saeima Square. In the early 30s the whole street for a short time was called Saeima Street. In 1941 it was renamed to Muzeja (Museum) Street, in 1950 – Vestures (Historic) Street. After restoration of independence of Latvia the street regained its original name.
