Albert's Square

Albert's Square

Albert's square is between Vetspilsetas, Kaleju and Alksnaju streets. The square is named in honour of the first bishop of Riga - Albert. The modern Riga has begun its creation from the construction works in this area. There was a port on the river Ridzene on a place, where Albert square is situated today. In the middle of the 18th century, when warehouses and post station have been taken down, territory have been equipped and have entitled Albert's square, and in 1923 have changed the name for Albert's area.
