Gaiļezers hospital (aka Hospital No. 7) was build in 1979 and at that time it was the most modern hospital in Latvia. Located in Mežciems suburb in Eastern side of Riga, Gaiļezers is probably one of a few major public institutions that has survived all this time without significant renovation works. Besides, it still hosts an underground shelter that could have been used as a hideaway from a possible nuclear bomb attack during the Cold War times.
