[LAT] Teika ir viena no Rigas pilsetas dalam, kas atrodas Daugavas labaja krasta, Vidzemes priekšpilseta. Tas apbuve ir dažadu tipu, bet taja domine privatmajas. Teika tiek uzskatita par vienu no zalakajiem un prestižakajiem Rigas rajoniem, kas turklat atrodas tuvu centram un kura ir labi attistits sabiedriskais transports. Sakuma rajona nosaukums bija "Dzivojamo maju kolonija pie Brivibas gatves". Rajona nosaukums celies no bijuša kinoteatra "Teika" (atklats 1937. gada).

Šeit tika atlauts buvet atseviškas privatas gimenes majas un nelielus pašvaldibas ires namus, bet blivaka piecstavu apbuve bija atlauta tikai gar Brivibas gatvi un Lielvardes ielu. Sakot ar 1934. gadu, tika apbuveta teritorija aiz Lielvardes ielas Juglas virziena.


Teikas galvenais laukums ir Zemitana laukums, kura atrodas piemineklis pulkvedim Jorgim Zemitanam (atklats 1995. gada 27. septembri). Zemitana laukuma atrodas ari vietejas nozimes arhitekturas piemineklis - 1933. gada celta kinoteatra "Teika" eka.
