The Swedish gate is the only one of eight gates of Riga wall, which have remained up to now. Worth to visit!

Next to the Swedish gate You can find B-Bars. The only place in old town where You will get a excellent Margarita. If You don't like Margaritas, sip some traditional Riga Black Balsam.

Swedish Gate - named because it was built by ruling Swedes in 1698, is the only gate to the city still standing, and separates a quiet part of the Old Town from the noisy bars around it.

Единственные ворота сохранившиеся по сей день! Но ничего особенного,кроме первого факта,они из себя не представляют
