Historical surroundings

Centrus is located in a part of Riga once famed for the city and known as Little Paris. Riga has changed since then, but the enchantment and personality of the bustling centre remains. Two worlds meet and blend in harmony – business and leisure.
The newly developed project Centrus is located in the active part of the city centre – in the quarter surrounded by Tērbatas, Dzirnavu, Blaumaņa and Barona streets, and encircled by historical Art Nouveau buildings. This is a safe haven established in a completely safe and high-quality environment, with the always changing and dynamic daily rhythm of the city awaiting you just outside Centrus.
This place began to flourish at the beginning of the 20th century and has not stopped since then. Economic life meets the world of high-quality entertainment and culture. The economic life of the quarter till the mid-twentieth century was characterized by pastry shops, cafes, inns, photographers, and pubs. The local cafes, hotels and recreation areas in the mornings were enjoyed by businessmen from all around; during lunch time intellectuals and students flooded the neighbourhood with their chats and lazy discussions, and in the evenings writers, artists and actors added their bohemian charm to the area.

 

The neighbourhood

The neighbourhood of Centrus is surrounded by the most remarkable historic and modern sites and buildings in the city. Just a few minutes’ walk to the green Vērmanes garden, with many fountains and monuments, the Latvian National Opera, Esplanade, Freedom Monument, and to the Old Town – a unique part of Riga on the UNESCO World Heritage list. The “calm centre” of Riga, located near Centrus stands out proudly with its Art Nouveau architecture. Convenient public transportation, taxis, cycle paths, and nearby main streets give easy access to Riga International Airport, the central railway station, Riga bus terminal, passenger port and marinas. The sea resort town of Jurmala and the Gulf of Riga is located only a half hour’s drive from the city, with excellent relaxation, spa complexes, and summer concerts and entertainment.
