The unique look of Pārdaugava’s Kalnciema Quarter (Latvian: Kalnciema kvartāls) is marked by its restored wooden houses, originally built in the late 19th century. This neighbourhood is just a five-minute drive from downtown Riga, or a pleasant 30-minute walk.
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.
