Great for a staycation, as a work-from-home alternative, friends or family. The place makes all shopping, entertainment and cultural events within reach, enjoys light and airy views to surrounding historical architecture and has an unmatched flavor of an old warehouse with rare wooden lifting wheel in the living room.

The space
Apartment is located in a quiet part of the old town, but at the same time not far from all of the Old Riga entertainment and recreational destinations.
The views from the apartment allow you to observe a surviving section of a medieval fortification wall that has been restored in 80ties, St. Jacobs Church, small, but enlightened fragment of Saeima (Latvian parlament), Dome Cathedral, depending wich way you look out.
For centuries the space was used as an attic warehouse with built in wooden lifting wheel for moving goods up and down. It has been refurbished in 90ties into a three bedroom living space but has kept the rustic character of an original warehouse.

Historically building belonged to a land property with 6 residential buildings constructed in 14-19 century. Of which the 14th century stone building with our attic apartment is the only one that survived from the medieval Russian trade settlement. In 1537 when it re-appeared in Riga real estate book entries, it was marked as Ernst van Mengden's residential building. Mengdens (German: von Mengden) is an ancient Baltic German family known in Livonia since the 15th century and was recorded in Vidzeme and Estonia Knighthood's matricula.

Where you’ll be

Riga, Latvia

Aldaru street is very quiet in winter time despite being in very heart of the city. It is partly pedestrian and has only limited car traffic on it. But it becames a lively tourist and local vacationers place during summer months as it has four sunny cafes next to each other on both sides of the street. Close by there are museums, art & souvenir shops and a street artist selling his work on the corner next to entrance in the house. It is pretty close (3. min walk) from main tourist attractions in the rest of Old Riga - Dome square and Livu square. In a few minutes you can walk up to eight hundred year old Riga Dome Square, the cafes, restaurants and nightclubs, as well as in the opposite direction – the beautiful promenade along the Latvia's largest river Daugava and a unique Riga central market, whose spectacular pavilions are included in the list of UNESCO cultural heritage. Old Riga is also home for several concert halls, such as the Great and the Small Guild in which you can regularly enjoy the performance of the greatest Latvian and foreign artists. Near the apartment are very interesting museums and exhibition halls.
