Kaķu nams (The Cats' House)
Meistaru iela 19
As the story of the building goes, it once belonged to a rich Latvian merchant who was excluded from the Great Guild, ruled by the Germans. He ordered two cat sculptures to be placed on the points of the house towers with their raised tails facing the Great Guild in order to insult his enemies. After a lengthy court battle the disagreement was resolved, the sculptures turned around and the owner of the house was admitted to the Guild.
