The so-called "Three Brothers" (Tris Brali), or Maza Pils numbers 17, 19, and 21, are the oldest stone houses still standing in Riga, and an excellent example of medieval architecture, perhaps matched only by the Golden Road of Prague. Built between the 15th century (White Brother) and the middle of the 18th century (Yellow Brother), the tiny houses really make you wonder if people were shorter back then, or if perhaps Tolkien's hobbits were once real. As an added bonus, the Latvian Museum of Architecture is housed in the White Brother, number 19.
