Two-block Building in Riga`s Quite centre

The two-block building in Jeruzalemes street 5 and the building in Dzirnavu street 36 are located in the historical part of Riga city which is known as the Quiet Centre. This part of the city is included in the UNESCO list of World Cultural and Natural Heritage. Here you can find the most spectacular and magnificent Art Nouveau buildings in the world. Thanks to the representative architecture, the nearby diplomatic area of embassies, and the harmonious environment, the Quiet Centre can be certainly considered as one of the most exclusive and safest regions in Riga. This is the place where the exquisite and historical atmosphere meets the modern rhythm of life.
