Kalnciema Quarter

Kalnciema Quarter is an ensemble of buildings representing 18th / 19th century Western European architecture of late classicism and eclecticism executed in wood. The complex is unique in the European level, as the wooden buildings of this period in other countries, have not survived in such concentration.  

Kalnciema Street significantly influences the perception of Riga City centre - the UNESCO World Heritage Site, being the gateway from the International Airport to the heart of the city.  The location has provided an additional opportunity for effective awareness-raising of the unique wooden architecture heritage.

The group of Riga wooden heritage buildings – Kalnciema Quarter was renovated and opened to public by a small entrepreneurial business – BC Grupa Ltd.  The company has succeeded to re-create the original spirit of the suburban environment and community in Kalnciema Quarter in Riga. The Quarter now hosts series of cultural and business events.
