Used as a cargo loading and unloading site on the banks of the Daugava river since the 14th century, the Spikeri Quarter saw a spurt in the construction of red-brick warehouses in the 19th century. Of the original 58 warehouses, only 13 survive, which have been converted into homes for cultural organizations, art venues, cosy cafes and restaurants. Adjacent to the Central Market, it is part of the UNESCO World Heritage site of the historical centre of Riga. Explore the area to see the Concert Hall that hosts the Sinfionetta Riga chamber orchestra as well as Latvian Radio Choir, Riga Ghetto Museum, Dirty Deal Teatro, kim? – a contemporary arts centre, and the Museum of Doll Art.
