Tērbatas iela 15/17




School building on Tērbatas street 15/17 was the first of National Romanticism buildings in Riga - Latvian national architecture style. This building is especially interesting with exclusive materials used in construction - for example, travertine used in facade cladding was brought from Staburags cliff. It becomes even more unique when you know the fact that Staburags was sunked later when Soviets built a hydro power plant on Daugava - now this cliff is under water for decades.

 Here you can see how the building looked before renovation:
