Kalnciema Iela / Kalnciema Street District is an interesting area on the other side of Riga – over the Daugava River, the area in general is called Pārdaugava.
Kalnciema Street Quarter consists of quite a lot of restored and refurbished wooden buildings from the period of 19th and early 20th centuries – important historical heritage of Europe and Russian Empire.
