Latvia Cat House



Latvia Cat House is one of the most beautiful tourist attractions in the capital city of Riga in Latvia. The Cat House is not only a tourist spot in the country, but it also carries great historical significance. It is a huge edifice standing proudly in the land of Riga. There are two metal statues of cats on the crest of the building.

There is a story behind these two cat statues. There is a saying that tells that the two cats had put a curse on the designer of the Cat House, who put the statues on the top of the building. And after designing the building, the man fell from above the top of the Cat House and died. In fact the designer intentionally made structure in such way that the backsides of the cats were facing the Great Guild and put the tails of the cats straight up to show his displeasure for the cats and to insult them. That is why the cats cursed the designer.

While traveling through the city of Riga, make sure to visit this historical heritage of Latvia. Not only the outer design of the Cat House, but the inside of the building also has many things to offer.
