Pinsteps. The small guild
Places to visit in Riga. Languages: ru, he, en

Opposite the Great Guild is a famous house with cats. There is no resident or guest of the city, who would not have heard a saying about this house and these cats. It is said that a certain Blümer - the owner of the apartment building opposite the Great Guild could not become a member of the respected community of Riga merchants. Here, he undertook a sophisticated psychological pressure on the chairman. He placed cats with arched backs and raised tails on the roofs of his house and turned the chairman from the rear to the windows. Long trials and debates could not change the posture of the seals, and only the adoption of Blumer into the union of merchants could rectify the situation; Kotov turned to the guild front, and to the new Riga ass. But not only the piquant story is connected with this house. In 1991, a peaceful demonstration was sent from here to the bastion hill, as part of demonstrations for the withdrawal of Latvia from the USSR. A sniper shot in the back killed two Lithuanian cameramen who filmed the demonstration. Translated with Google Translate
