Zviedru vārti (The Swedish Gate)

Torņu iela 6
Riga, LV-1050
The Swedish Gate built in 1698 after the Swedish occupation of Riga is the only gate to survive and retain its original looks. It was built in the fortification wall, surrounding the old city. Most of the wall was destroyed in the 1800s in order to improve traffic communication in the economically flourishing city. The city executioner lived in the rooms above the gate at that time. According to the legend, there was a red rose in his window above the gate every night before an execution.
