Just in front of the House of Blackheads is placed domed plaque marking the site of the first New Years (Christmas) tree ceremony.
The plaque is engraved "The First New Years Tree in Riga in 1510", in eight languages.
I was standing right on the same place where the first New Year tree in Riga was...I pretented to a that tree))) It was really fun!
The Musicians of Bremen Statue is strategically placed between three major churches in Riga, Saint Peter's, Saint John's and Saint George's churches. The German city of Bremen, by the way, is twinned to Riga and the statue is a 1990 gift from the german town
It is a bronze statue with the figures of four animals from the Musicians of Bremen's story: the donkey, the dog, the cat and fthe rooster. This statue is the exact replica of the statue in the city hall of Bremen.
And surely I whispered a wish to each of the animals)))
