Join this interesting and entertaining tour – guided by Arturs, some of you might know him already from our last tours.
Rich in Jewish History and wooden architecture, The Moscow Suburb, officially called the ‘Latgales priekšpilsēta’ but colloquially known as ‘Maskachka’ is by far one of the least explored parts of Riga.
Once home to a large Jewish population it became the Jewish ghetto for Riga during WWII. The Moscow district is one of the oldest suburbs, and has undergone the least change – means a walking tour through it can be like travelling back in time.
Today the suburb is run down, a little sad and in need of attention.
