The Great China Wall - Dzelzavas iela 23, Dzelzavas iela 25



Some Soviet time block buildings in Riga are especially long. I've heard the nick name "The Great China Wall" about 2 places in Riga and I don't know which one of these places is the "real" Great China Wall - is it several 9-floor buildings side by side in Purvciems, Dzelzava street (upper photo) or is it that huge 10-floor building in Ziepniekkalns (lower photo)? Does some rigan know it?

See these places in Riga map?

  1. The second one is probably the biggest residental building in Riga. Impressive when you see it, but I wouldn't prefer to live there.
    Never heard about Great China Wall in Riga.
