The Moscow Suburb
One of the oldest and architecturally most valuable places in Riga is the Moscow Suburb, which first emerged just outside the walls of Riga in the 13th century. Today the Moscow Suburb is home to all the merchants and customers’ dream – the Central Market of Riga. The 21-storied Academy of Sciences is situated just next to it. It was the first high rise building in Latvia, originally planned as a Collective farmers’ house for the purpose of glorifying the Soviet government. During this tour our guides will help you understand the cultural history of Russians and Jews. You will have the opportunity to visit churches of various denominations, including the beautiful Grebenschikov Old Believers’ House of Prayers, the dome of which is the only one in Riga that is entirely covered in gold.
