Jacob's Barracks is a long street in the historic centre of Riga which runs through what used to be a military district. The yellow buildings are all wonderfully colourful, and hide the fact that many used to house troops! On the same street, you can find the War Museum too, making this a good spot for history buffs to explore!

At Jacob’s Barracks are a lovely collection of yellow buildings that flank one side of Torna Street, signalling the end of the old town before you embark upon Bastion Hill and the city’s new neighbourhood. The buildings house a number of shops, galleries, restaurants and bars, with Swedish Gate at one end and Powder Tower at the other.

Начинаются возле пороховой башни и тянутся почти до самого Рижского замка. В годы советской власти тут размещалось общежитие Нахимовского училища.
