Legends

Once upon a time…
Legends and stories about places and items in Riga can be considered a white truth or old wives’ tales; they can be called the remnants of the past or oral history and urban folklore. It is up to you.

Who knows whether it was like that or it happened slightly otherwise… but legends always have some background. And Riga has a vast background!
