Geocache Description:


[LV] Rīgas Centrāltirgu svinīgi atklāja 1930. gadā, un tas tika atzīts ne tikai par lielāko, bet arī par labāko un modernāko Eiropā. Dažādos laikos Rīgas Centrāltirgus nemainīgi atradies pašā Rīgas sirdī, sniedzot daudzveidīgu iepirkšanos, personisku attieksmi, dzīvīgas sarunas, krāšņus stāstus un jautru kaulēšanos tirgus apmeklētājiem.
Rīgas Centrāltirgus atrodas gandrīz pašā Rīgas sirdī, pārsimt metru attālumā no Vecrīgas, Daugavas krastā, blakus Rīgas Starptautiskajai autoostai un Centrālajai dzelzceļa stacijai. Tas ir ne tikai platības ziņā viens no lielākajiem Austrumeiropā, bet arī viens no apmeklētākajiem tirgiem – ik dienu to apmeklē no 80 000 līdz pat 100 000 cilvēku.
Spilgts Centrāltirgus simbols ir 20. gadsimta 20. gados būvētie arhitektoniski izteiksmīgie paviljoni. Izrādās, ka tie sākotnēji celti kā dirižabļu angāri militārām vajadzībām, vēlāk tos nolēma izmantot kā tirgus paviljonus. Rīgas Centrāltirgus ir unikāls ne tikai ar paviljoniem, bet arī ar senajām noliktavām jeb tā sauktajiem spīķeriem, kuros mūsdienās izveidots radošo industriju kvartāls.
1998. gadā Rīgas Centrāltirgus teritorija iekļauta UNESCO Pasaules mantojuma sarakstā.


[EN] Riga Central Market, which opened in 1930, was recognized not only as the largest, but also the best and most advanced marketplace in Europe. Riga Central Market has invariably remained in the very heart of Riga city, ensuring diverse shopping experience, a personal touch, lively conversation, tall tales and exuberant bargaining with the vendors.
Riga Central Market is situated in the heart of Riga, a few hundred meters from Old Town on the banks of the River Daugava, next to Riga International Bus Terminal and Central Railway Station. It is not only one of the largest marketplaces in Eastern Europe in area, but also one of the most visited, as 80,000-100,000 people shop there per day on the average.
Architecturally-imposing food pavilions, built in the 1920s, are Riga Central Market’s calling card. Originally used as military airship hangars, they were later transformed into market venues. Riga Central Market is unique not only with its pavilions but also with its old warehouses or the so-called spikeri (from German Spéicher), which have now been turned into a hip arts&entertainment quarter.
In 1998, the vast territory of Riga Central Market was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list.
