Great and Small Guild houses in Old Riga, Latvia

122 votos
Both Great Guild and Small Guild dates from the 14th century when Riga was a member of Hanseatic League (cities which dominated the trade around the Baltic Sea and North Sea). The Great Guild was for the merchants and the Small Guild was for the craftsmen.

The appearance of the buildings you see today is of later date. The Great Guild was built between 1854 - 57 and today it houses the Latvian State Philharmonic Orchestra. The Small Guild was constructed between 1864 - 1866. Today the building is home of a cultural house, Guild. There are concerts, dances and conferences held here.

Impressive, really impressive!!

t's amazing the perspective one have from this height.
I like much more the distance from the facade than the last pano: I think its better to appreciate the facade as a whole.
Good job.

Thank you! :)
In this pano there really was no reason to choose just one facade to stick at - all houses around are quite impressive, and streets of Old Riga are so narrow... :)

Really great. What equipment have you used?

It's made with a help of 15m telescopic mast - not so portable as NN poles, but more reachable in some cases... :)
