  2. Great shot, thank you! And I know little bit of modern history of this house. In Soviet times this house was in terrible conditions and some regular families were living there like in "kommunalka". And only in 1988, when Rinuzhi district was built, these families were moved to new apartments, and after few years the music school was built and this house was restored. My classmate and my neighbors were living there and I remember time when we went to educational tour to Burtnieku nams as part of our Latvian language class in secondary school.
