Description: The Riga Central Market was build from two airship hangars. These hangars came from the former WW I airship station Wainoden (Vaiņode), Courland. The two hangars were 240m long and had a volume of 70.500m≥. They were named "Walhalla" and "Walther" and build by Seibert Company from Saarbrucken.
In 1924 the hangars was bought by the council of Riga to build up the Central Market. Only the roofs were used, because of the hygiene factors.
Five halls were build from the two hangars. A 140m long one at the north-east and 4 smaller, 70m long, halls.
