Located behind Doma laukums, away from the cathedral, three architectural gems neatly line up in a photogenic row. Known as the Three Brothers, these three stone houses exemplify Old Rīga’s diverse collection of architectural styles (and echo Tallinn’s ‘Three Sisters’). No 17 is over 600 years old, making it the oldest stone dwelling in town, and No 19 (built in the 17th century) is now the Rīga Museum of Architecture . Note the tiny windows on the upper levels – Rīga’s property taxes during the Middle Ages were based on the size of one’s windows.
