Any citizens of Riga here?

Can anyone tell me the modern name of the street in Riga - on the west bank, close to the old road bridge - known to the Germans as Mitauer Strasse?

I'm assuming you've already looked at googlemaps?

Tom, I'm guessing it is Jelgava Street, but it would be nice to be certain!

Hi Prit,

I will be in Riga towards the end of October so could take a look. Where does the street run to and from?

In fact it appears that Jelgavas iela has its own Wiki entry which states that it was called Alte Mitauer Strasse and then Mitauer Strasse.
Regards

We could do with some experts on the city on the forum.

You could call them the Riga extraordinary gentlemen...

(Sorry, that doesn't help you one bit Prit :D ).
