Noise street's silence



Trokšņu (Noise) street despite of it's name is one of calmest and cosiest Old Town's streets. It's very narrow and medieval built-up here uninterrupted by buildings of other periods. It was historically street which went along Riga's defensive wall and thus was named Trauksmes (Alarm) street, because in the case of attack, here city's defenders gathered together. Street's building process started only in 16th Century when it started to lose it's guarding meaning.
